# Which of the following statements is correct?

$\begin{array}{1 1}\text{Cathode is positive terminal in an electrolytic cell}\\\text{Cathode is negative terminal in a galvanic cell}\\\text{Reduction occurs at cathode in either of cells}\\\text{Oxidation occurs at cathode in either of cells}\end{array}$

Answer : Reduction occurs at cathode in either of cells
Cathode is the positive terminal in a galvanic cell and is the negative terminal in an electrolytic cell.The reaction occurring at cathode is the reduction reaction in either of the cells.
