(a) stoichiometric defect (b) dislocation defect
(c) impurity defect (d) non-stoichiometric defect
Answers: (a),and (b)
Frenkel defect arises when the smaller ion (usually cation) is dislocated its original site to the interstitial site, this is also known as dislocation defect. Since stoichiometry of substance persists so, it is categorized as the stoichiometric defect.
