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.
  1. Statement 1 is true and statement 2 is false
  2. Statement 1 is false and statement 2 is true
  3. Both statements are true
  4. Both statements are false


Solution

The correct option is C Both statements are true
Both 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.
