The maxm. CN can be 6.
Here it is 5. Hence oxidation state for Mo would be:
2x +2*-1 + 0 = – 2
x = 0 
Hence it is in 0 state.

Since C2H4 and H2O2 are neutal molecules so their oxudation state is 0. Therefore [2x + 4(-2) +0+0 = -2]x = 3.

The answer is +3 ignore all the other answers h2o and c2h4 is neutral molecule hence by simple algebra or guessing u can see that the answer comes out to be 3
