Following reactions occur at cathode during the electrolysis of aqueous sodium chloride solution:

Na+(aq) + e ⟶ Na (s) E0 =  2.71 V

H+(aq) + e ⟶ `1/2`  H2 (g) E0 = 0.00 V

On the basis of their standard reduction electrode potential (E0) values, which reaction is feasible at the cathode and why?
