oxidation is:

* loss of electrons.

* loss of hydrogen.

* gain of oxygen

1) Al gets oxidized.

2) S in H2S gets oxidized

3) Si gets oxidized

in the very first reaction S with +4 oxidation state in H2SO3 will get oxidized to H2SO4 with +6 oxidation state.

in the other reaction you have asked, S has -2 oxidation state and it oxidizes to S with 0 (zero) oxidation state.
