Question

The electron dot diagram that illustrates the structure of a molecule of Hydrogen chloride is: 


  1. True

  2. False


Solution

The correct option is A

True


Electronic configuration of H = 1
Electronic configuration of Cl = 2, 8, 7

Since chlorine is more electronegative than hydrogen, so the shared pair of electrons lies close to more electronegative atom Cl. This induces the polarity in the covalent bond between H and CI atoms.
