Question

# Select the correct statements(s)

A
For the same charge and the same size, a pseudo noble gas type cation with 18e in the outermost shell is more polarizing than the cation of noble gas type with 8e in the outermost shell
B
The degree of covalency increases in descending a group in the transition metal ions for a particular oxidation state
C
Size increases in descending a group in the transition metal ions for a particular oxidation state
D
Covalency decreases in descending a group in the transition metal ions for a particular oxidation

Solution

## The correct options are A For the same charge and the same size, a pseudo noble gas type cation with $$18\, e^-$$ in the outermost shell is more polarizing than the cation of noble gas type with $$8\, e^-$$ in the outermost shell B The degree of covalency increases in descending a group in the transition metal ions for a particular oxidation state(A) For the same charge and the same size, a pseudo noble gas type cation with $$18\, e^-$$ in the outermost shell is more polarizing than the cation of noble gas type with $$8\, e^-$$ in the outermost shell.This is due to the improper shielding by inner d electrons. Hence, the option A is correct.(B) The degree of covalency increases in descending a group in the transition metal ions for a particular oxidation state.This is because nuclear charge increases but there is no significant increase in the size due to lanthanoid contraction. Hence, the option B is correct.(C) Size does not significantly increases in descending a group in the transition metal ions for a particular oxidation state. This is due to the lanthanoid contraction. hence, the option C is correct.(D) Covalency increases in descending a group in the transition metal ions for a particular oxidationHence, the option D is incorrect.Chemistry
