Reaction between X and Y, forms compound Z. X loses electron and Y gains electron. Which of the following properties is not shown by Z?
(a) Has high melting point
(b) Has low melting point
(c) Conducts electricity in molten state
(d) Occurs as solid
During reaction between X and Y, the compound Z is formed.
X loses electron and Y gains electron. Hence Z is an ionic compound.
1.Have high melting point
2.Conducts electricity in molten state
3.Usually occur as solids.
Therefore option (b) is correct
