The one that is oxidized is the reducing agentthe a reduced is the oxidizing agentto identify which one is being oxidized or reduced, it is necessary to check how the oxidation state of the element changes. remember that if the oxidation state increases oxidation, if it decreases is the reduction. I have attached an image that shows how the charges of the changes.As you can see, Li goes from 0 to +1, and F goes from 0 to -1. this means that Li is being oxidized is the reducing agent
