c. C6H6


Expert Answer

Step 1

A chemical compound consists of two or more different elements which are bonded with each other through different types of chemical bonds. A chemical bond is an interaction between two atoms that occurs due to valence shell electrons of an atom.

Step 2

An ionic bond can be defined as the electrostatic force of attraction between cation and anions. Here cation is a positively charged ion which is formed due to loss of electron whereas an anion is formed by the gain of electrons. Because of opposite charges they form a chemical bond with each other called an ionic bond.

Step 3

On the contrary, a covalent bond is formed by equal sharing of electrons between bonded atoms. Since non-metals have 5, 6 ...
