Question 183

Question

MCQ▾

The elements of which group neither donate nor accept electrons?

Choices

Choice (4)

a.

b.

c.

d.

Answer

c.

Explanation

  • The elements of group have valence electrons. So it is not at all easy for the elements of the group to give electrons in order to achieve octet configuration. At the same time, it is also difficult for the group elements to accommodate four extra electrons in order to achieve octet configuration. Hence they mostly share their valence electrons but do not transfer.
  • Therefore they are known as metalloids as they neither give electrons like metals not accept electrons like nonmetals.
