Electronegativity -

A qualitative measure of the ability of an atom in a chemical compound to attract shared electron is electronegativity.

- wherein

It is not a measurable quantity.

 

 

Electronegativity and non-metallic character -

Non-metallic elements have strong tendency to gain electrons.Therefore electronegativity is directly related to non-metallic properties of elements.

- wherein

Electronegativity \propto  non-metallic property

Correct order

(1) Ga < Ge

(2) Si < Al

(3) P < S

(4) Te < Se

 


Option 1)

Ga < Ge

Option 2)

P > S

Option 3)

 Si < Al

Option 4)

 Te > Se
