Question

Is this compound ionic or covalent?

  1. Ionic
  2. Covalent
  3. Both A and B
  4. None of the above

hintHint:

Covalent compounds share electron pairs.

The correct answer is: Covalent


    • A covalent compound involves a covalent bond.
    • A covalent bond is a chemical bond that involves sharing of electrons.
    • Electron pairs are shared with surrounding atoms to fulfill each other's electron deficiency.
    • In the shown picture one central atom shares its electron pairs with each surrounding atom, hence is covalent.
