Q. 17

Identify the pair A. 126 X, 136 y

B. 3517X, 3717Y

C. 146 X, 147 Y

D. 84X, 85Y

Answer :

Isotopes are species of same elements having different mass number (proton+neutron) number, they have the same atomic number or proton numbers but differ in numbers of neutrons.

Therefore, the entities (iii)146 X, 147 Y and (iv)84X, 85Y are not at all isotopes as they have atomic numbers 6 and 7, 4 and 5 respectively.

Other 2 options (i) 126 X, 136 y (ii) 3517X, 3717Y are definitely isotopes.
