Expert Answer

Step 1

The given specie is Co(s).


The chemical name of Co is cobalt. The bond present in the given species is metallic because Co is a transition metal.

Step 2

The second species is CoCl2.


The given compound is formed by the reaction of Co with chlorine. Co is a metal, whereas Cl is a non metal. The reaction between metal and non-metal involves ionic bond where ions are bonded by electrostatic force of attraction. Therefore, the given compound involves ionic bonding.

Step 3

The given compound is CCl4.


The given compound is formed by the reaction of C with chlorine. C and Cl are non-metal. The reaction between non...
