Answer: (3)

Compounds of hydrogen with less electronegative elements are known as hydrides. So when hydrogen reacts with any other element the product formed is considered to be a hydride. If we closely observe the periodic table hydrides formation is not seen from 7th, 8th and 9th groups elements and this condition is known as hydride gap.
