Solution

The correct option is C

It is formed by bonding of two or more elements


An element is defined as the simplest substance that cannot be broken down using chemical methods. A compound on the other hand is a substance formed when two or more chemical elements are bonded together. A molecule is formed by bonding of two or more atoms of the same element. For example, O2 (oxygen) molecule.
