Expert Answer

Step 1

Chlorine is a chemical element with atomic number 17. Its electronic configuration is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p5. It has 7 electrons in its valency shell. To get octet configuration it gains 1 electron and forms anion.

Silicon is a chemical element with atomic number 14. Its electronic configuration is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p2. It has 4 electrons in its valency shell. To get octet configuration it gains, share 4 electron and forms anion.

Magnesium is a chemical element with atomic number 12. Its electronic configuration is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2. ...
