24. A dilute ferrous sulphate solution was gradu¬ally added to the beaker containing acidified permanganate solution. The light purple colour of the solution fades and finally disap¬pears. Which of the following is the correct explanation for the observation? (a) KMnO4 is an oxidising agent, it oxidises FeSO4. (b) FeSO4 acts as an oxidising agent and oxidises KMNO4. (c) The colour disappears due to dilution; no reaction is involved. (d) KMnO4 is an unstable compound and de-composes in presence of FeSO4. to a colourless compound.
