the lanthanide series, +3 oxidation state is most common i.e., Ln(III) compounds are predominant. However, +2 and +4 oxidation states can also be found in the solution or in solid compounds

Dear student 
All the elements in the lanthanide series show an oxidation state of +3. Earlier it was believed that some of the metals (samarium, europium, and ytterbium) also show +2 oxidation states. Further studies on these metals and their compounds have revealed that all the metals in lanthanide series exhibit +2 oxidation state in their complexes in solutions.
 
A few metals in the lanthanide series occasionally show +4 oxidation states. This uneven distribution of oxidation state among the metals is attributed to the high stability of empty, half-filled or fully filled f-subshells.
 
The stability of f-subshell affects the oxidation state of lanthanides in such a way that the +4 oxidation state of cerium is favoured as it acquires a noble gas configuration but it reverts to a +3 oxidation state and thus acts as a strong oxidant and can even oxidize water, although the reaction will be slow.
