Can you please check this one:
MnO4- + HSO3- (in acidic solution)
Oxidation: MnO4- + 5e- + 8 H+ --> Mn2+ + 4 H2O
Reduction: HSO3- + H2O --> SO42- + 2 e- + 3 H+
Balanced Equation: 2 MnO4- + 5 HSO3- + H+ --> 2 Mn2+ + 5 SO42- + 3 H2O

I am having difficulty with these (especially, the ones in solution)

Cyclohexanol + HOCl
HOCl + I-
HOCl + HSO3- (in acidic solution)
