d. none of the above

Explanation:

An electrochemical cell consists of two half-cells, with each cell containing an electrode.

The potential of a single electrode in a half-cell is called the Single electrode potential.

The emf of a cell that consists of two half-cells can be determined by connecting them to a voltmeter.

However, there is no way of measuring the emf of a single half-cell directly.

The only way to determine the emf of a single electrode is to combine it with a standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) and measure it with a voltmeter.

Therefore, the correct option is D “none of the above”
