# The cannizzaro reaction is given below :

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{Attack of OH-ion}\\(b)\;\text{Transfer of hydride ion}\\(c)\;\text{Inter molecular proton transfer}\\(d)\;\text{Both a and b}\end{array}$

In the cannizzaro reaction,transfer of hydride ion step is slowest step.
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
