I'm wondering when the metal that is being reduced reacts, does it always end up by itself? Example:

Carbon monoxide gas is passed over hot iron (III) oxide.
(II) (III) (IV) (II)
CO + Fe2O3 ---> CO2 + Fe

When i first attempted this problem I got FeO instead of just Fe. So I am wondering will the reduce metal always end up just being an element like in this problem? Or is oxygen not listed in the answer because it is a spectator?

Sorry, I haven't learnt redox reaction or professional people on chemistry.
But in this case, I will use carbon to reduce the iron oxide instead.
According to my book, pure iron should be given out.
