Help with balanced redox reaction?

I'm not sure how to do this.

4NaOH (aq) + Ca(OH)2 (aq) + C(s) + 4CLO2 (g) -> 4 NaClO2 + CaCO3 + 3H2O(I)

what is the oxidation state of CL in CLO2?

what is the oxidation state of C in C?

what the is the element that is oxidized and reduced?

(I don't understand this one because of how long the reaction is. Please answer and explain your answer please.)
