Explanation: 

In the reaction 2Al(s) + 3Cl2(g) -----------> 2AlCl 3 (s)

Al is changing its oxidation state from 0 to +3

Cl is changing its oxidation state from 3 to -1

so, Al is undergoing oxidation and Cl is undergoing reacdution .

Yes, it is oxidation reduction reaction .

Answer: 

Yes, since Al is underging an oxidation and Cl is undergoing reduction .
