Question

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

`Ag^+(aq)+e^(-)rarrAg(s)" ""      ""       "E^@=+0.80V`

`H^+(aq)+e^(-)rarr1/2H_2(g)" "" "" " E^@=0.00V`

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