Pyrosilicates -

Two tetrahedral units share one oxygen atom between them containing basic unit of Si_2O_7^{6-} anion

- wherein

E.g. Thortveitite \left ( Sc_{2}Si_{2}O_{7} \right )

 

 In pyrosilicity, two tetrahedral units share one oxygen atom between them containing basic unit of Si_{2}O_{7}^{6-} anion

Linear chain silicate

This is incorrect option

Option 2)

Sheet silicate

This is incorrect option

Option 3)

Pyrosilicate
