about reduction potential of alkyl halide

I mean when any reactive metal is giving electrons by oxidation in the presence

Of hydrogen ion and alkyl groub which will be reduced by gaining electron please answer its urgent .thanks

I would highly urge you to please be very specific in asking question. Typically, C-X bond is more polarized between C-I than in C-F say. So metal insertion between C-I is easier. Is this what you meant???

H+ have very high tendency of gaining electrons and similarly carbocations also gain electrons  because of the positive charge on them .
