(a) Pt(NH3)2Cl2 or Pt

(b) copper or copper(II) oxide

(c) silicon or sand

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

In the given pairs, one that is element and compound has to be decided.

Concept Introduction:

Element: It is chemical species of atoms that has the same number of protons in their atomic nuclei.  Elements are chemically the simplest substance and they cannot be broken down by chemical reactions.

Compound: A compound is substance that is formed by two or more chemical elements when they are chemically bonded together.

Explanation of Solution

Pt is an element because it is made up of one type of atoms and Pt(NH3
