3.Remember the electrochemiscal series as a building/ tower

Let's get into the story!
On the floor 0.0 lives the janitor of the building, and his name is Hydrogen a.k.a. ${H}_{2}$. ${H}_{2}$ is a normal guy and this is why he lives on the floor 0,00 because he is "neutral".
Above the janitor live the bad guys, and below him live the good guys.
The guy who lives on the top floor of the building, floor -3.05, is a terrible person. His name is Lithium a.k.a. $L i$. He constantly throws things out of the window and disturbs other neighbors. Neighbors who live below him have gone crazy, they can not stop him, so under his influence they started throwing things out of the window. In other words they oxidize.
Neighbors who live under the janitor have apartments marked with positive numbers. These neighbors are good people. The best neighbor is the one on the floor 2,87. His name is Fluorine a.k.a. $F$ and he lives on the ground floor. He is not bothered with the behavior of other bad neighbors at all. He cleans up all the items that fall on the floor. In other words he reduces.
