Question

# In a covalent bond formation:

A
transfer of electrons takes place
B
sharing of electrons between two atoms takes place
C
electrons are shared by one atom only
D
electrons are donated by one atom and shared by both atoms.

Solution

## The correct option is B sharing of electrons between two atoms takes placeCovalent bonds are formed when two atoms begin sharing electrons, the electrons are attracted towards the nuclei that are positively charged. Example: $$Cl-Cl$$.It is not necessary that both atoms of covalent bond always will be the same, they can be different for example $$HF$$ molecule, in such case electrons not shared equally and attract towards the more electronegative element.Chemistry
