Pick the incorrect statement regarding ionic bonds.
It contains electropositive and electronegative elements.
It contains positive ions and negative ions.
It contains shared pair of electrons.
It involves electrostatic interaction.
The correct option is D It contains shared pair of electrons.
Electropositive elements tend to become positive ions and electronegative elements tend to become negative ions. The positive and the negative ions come together in an electrostatic interaction to form the ionic bond. There is a complete gain or loss of electrons. The sharing of electrons does not take place.
