The answer is: c. CuSO4 + 2NaOH yields of Cu(OH)2 + Na2SO4.Copper atom has an oxidation number of +2, the sulfur atom oxidation number of +6, oxygen has an oxidation number of-2, sodium has an oxidation number of +1 and hydrogen has a +1 on both sides of the chemical reaction, so that the elements do not change their oxidation number.
