    • A. 

      To lose all their electrons

    • B. 

      To gain more electrons

    • C. 

      To gain the same number of protons as noble gases

    • D. 

      To obtain the same electronic configuration as noble gases

    • E. 

      To become an alloy

  • 2. 
    Why are metals soft and malleable?
    • A. 

      Because they are cute and adorable

    • B. 

      Because they experience electrostatic repulsion

    • C. 

      Because of the presence of mobile electrons

    • D. 

      The metal cations can slip over each other fairly easily.

    • E. 

      None of the above

  • 3. 
    Explain why sodium chloride has a high melting pointSodium bromide exist as giant ionic lattice. A lot of energy is required to overcome the stron _____ attraction between the positively charged Na+ and Cl- ions. Hence sodium bromide has a high melting point.
  • 4. 
    Explain why aluminium is a good electrical conductorAluminum exist as giant metallic lattice. Each aluminium atom loses 3 valence electrons to form a latice of positively charge Al3+ ions surrounded by 'sea' of electrons. Presence of ________ ________ which can flow under applied potential makes aluminium a good electrical conductor.
  • 5. 
    When electrons are completely transferred, they will form ions and ionic compounds. This is known as _______ ________
  • 6. 
    The overall process of achieving stability is _________

      Freeze it

    • C. 

      Heat it above its melting point

    • D. 

      Mix it with solid sodium chloride

    • E. 

      None of the above.

  • 8. 
    Which of the following is untrue for an ionic compound?
