Question

If the number of protons in one atom of an element Y is 20, then the number of electrons in its ion Y2+will be:
(a) 20
(b) 19
(c) 18
(d) 16

Solution

(c) 18
Number of protons is equal to the number of electrons in an atom. It is given that an atom of an element Y contains 20 electrons. Therefore, number of electrons in its ion Y2+ is 18 (20 → 2).

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
