i believe the answer would be c
the the compound of interest i.e. xcl4, since there are 4 cl atoms bonded to x. this signifies that the valency of x is 4.
there atomic number of c is 6. it's electronic configuration is giving by 1s2 2s2 2p2. thus, there are 4 electrons in valence shell of c. this signifies that valency of c is 4. hence the compound present in present case is ccl4.
hope this : )
i look it up online and i'll tell you
when electrons are shared by two atoms then it results in the formation of a covalent bond.
both chlorine and fluorine are non-metals and are electron deficient in nature. therefore, when both of them combine then they tend to share the electrons and thus they form covalent bond.
since fluorine is more electronegative than chlorine, therefore, a partial positive charge will develop on chlorine and partial negative charge will develop on fluorine atom.
thus, we can conclude that the arrow shows that the bond between the chlorine atom and the fluorine atom is covalent. the electrons in the bond are pulled towards fluorine atom, and the chlorine atom is partially positive.
