Solution

The general formula for those kinds of compounds would be AB2
Example- MgCl2, CaCl2. This is because the valency of group 2 elements is 2 and that of group 17th elements if 1 so to satisfy the combining capacity of group 2 elements two of group 17 elements are required in the molecular formula.
