  • 7. 
    Why are ionic compounds brittle?
    • A. 

      Because they're solids.

    • B. 

      Because when something hits it, a layer of ions is pushed so that they are next to ions of the same charge. They are repulsed by each other and break.

    • C. 

      Because they're not strong bonds.

    • D. 

      Because when something hits it, a layer of ions is pushed so that they are next to ions of the same charge. They are attracted to each other and break.
