(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

An example for monoatomic cation and monoatomic anion has to be given.

Concept Introduction:

Ions are formed by either lose or gain of electrons by an atom. When an atom loses electron, it becomes positively charged and it is termed as “cations”. When an atom gains electron, it becomes negatively charged and it is termed as “anions”.

Cations that possess one or more ions of same element are called as monoatomic cations, whereas cations that possess ions of more than one element are called as polyatomic cations.

Anions that possess one or more ions of same element are called as monoatomic anions, whereas anions that possess ions of more than one element are called as polyatomic cations.
