M is a metal above hydrogen in the activity series and its oxide has the formula M2O. This oxide when dissolved in water forms the corresponding hydroxide which is a good conductor of electricity. In the above context, answer the following:
1) What kind of combination exists between M and O?
2)How many electrons are there in the outermost shell of M?
3) Name the group to which M belongs.
4) State the reaction taking place at the cathode.
5) Name the product at the anode.
