Solution

## The valence electrons are the electrons present in the outermost shell of an atom.Metals generally have 1, 2, and 3 valence electrons in their valence shell.So, metals have a tendency to donate these electrons very easily and form positive ions.Example of some metals are: Sodium $\left(\mathrm{Na}\right)$, Copper($\mathrm{Cu}$), Iron($\mathrm{Fe}$) etc.
