#### Explanation:

Zinc can be readily oxidized.........

Hydrogen ion, as the

We add the individual redox equations in such a way that electrons do NOT appear.........i.e.

Charge is balanced, and mass is balanced, as is required for any stoichiometric equation...........any representation of reality.
