(a)  CH4

(b) CH2Cl2

(c) CuCl2

(d) HI

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 48P:

Here, we are going to find out the oxidation state of each atom in each of the compound.

Step 1:  (a)  CH4

Hydrogen  belongs to Group (I) element. It has one single valence electron ,that can be easily donate or shared to form bond with C atom.

Thus, in  CH4, Hydrogen has 1+ oxidation state.
