Expert Answer

Step 1

It is to determine whether the following statements are true or false.

D) A double bond consists of two electrons.

This statement is false.

A double bond consists of two bonds (=) and so it has total of four electrons.

Step 2

E) Two sigma bonds comprise a double bond.

This statement is false.

A double bond consists of two bonds, in which one is sigma bond and the other is pi bond.

Step 3

F) A triple bond consists of one sigma bond and two pi bonds.

This statement is true.

A triple bond...
