Question

# Statement - 1: Two atoms form an ionic bond if one of the atoms has 1, 2 or 3 electrons in its outer most shell and is able to lose electrons easily. Statement - 2: Two atoms form an ionic bond if one of the atom has 5, 6 or 7 electrons in its outer most shell and gains electrons easily.Statement 1 is true and statement 2 is falseStatement 1 is false and statement 2 is trueBoth statements are trueBoth statements are false

Solution

## The correct option is C Both statements are trueBoth the statements are true because :  If an atom has 1 electron in its outermost shell and able to lose it easily, it forms an ionic bond with an atom that has 7 electrons in its outermost shell and gains electron easily. If an atom has 2 electron in its outermost shell and able to lose them easily, it forms an ionic bond with an atom having 6 electrons in its outermost shell and gains electrons easily. If an atom has 3 electron in its outermost shell and able to lose them easily, it forms an ionic bond with an atom having 5 electrons in its outermost shell and gains electrons easily.
