Answer:

We could invoke a comproportionation reaction........

Explanation:

#S_8(s) + 16H_2SO_4(l) → 24SO_2(g) + 16H_2O(l)#

And thus we start with #stackrel(0)S# and #stackrel(+VI)S#, and we finish with #stackrel(+IV)S#. Elemental sulfur is oxidized, and the sulfuric acid is REDUCED. Is it balanced?
