Solution

The correct option is A True 
An ionic bond is a type of chemical bond in which two oppositely charged ions are held by electrostatic forces.The metal atom loses the valence electrons while the non-metal atom accepts these electrons. By losing electrons, metal atoms change to cations and by accepting electrons, non-metal atoms form anions.These oppositely charged ions are drawn closer  to form ionic bonds.
