Q111) A compound contains atoms of three elements in A,B and C. If oxidation number of A is +2, B is +5 and that of C is -2, the possible formula of the compound is

SOLUTION

total oxidation number should become zero

for option (a)

A=3×(+2)=+6

B==2 × (+5)=+10

C=2×4×(-2)=-16

Total of above is zero; option (a) is correct

Answer: (a)
