The atomic number

Answer :

The electronic configuration of X is 2,8,8,2

Since it has 2 valence electrons in its valence shell and it will lose 2 electrons to gain nearest stable gas configuration. So, the valency of X is 2.

(b) Since it loses electrons to gain inert gas configuration, so it is a non-metal.

(c) Atomic no. of element Y is 8

Electronic configuration will be 2,6

Valency of Y will be 2

The formula of compound can be calculated by cross-multiplying the valences as follows:

Therefore, formula is XY.
