The ions which have the highest and shortest C − O length from the given list have to be determined. Concept Introduction: Fractional bond order: The molecules which have resonance structures possess fractional bond order. Bond order between any bonded pair of atoms X and Y: B o n d o r d e r = n u m b e r o f s h a r e d p a i r s i n a l l X − Y b o n d s n u m b e r o f X − Y l i n k s i n t h e m o l e c u l e o r i o n Bond length is inversely proportional to the bond order. A higher bond order results in a shorter bond for a given pair of atoms.
