Graphite cannot be classified as __________.
A. conducting solid

B. network solid

C. covalent solid

D. ionic solid

Answer :

Graphite cannot be classified as an ionic solid because it does not have the characteristic of an ionic solid-


it does not have ions as constituent particles rather neutral C atoms.


Even in water, it does not form any sort of ions for conductivity.



Whereas, graphite belongs to the classes (i) conducting solid (having multiple-layered structures and 3 fold bonding it is left with free electrons for conduction.


(ii) network solid (carbon atoms are covalently bonded and form network type crystalline structure) and


(iii) covalent solid ( constituent C atoms are covalently bonded with each other in multiple layers).
