Select correct statement
1.Cations with 18 electron shells have greater polarising power than the cations with 8-electron shells.
2.Inner shell electrons have a poor shielding effect on the nucleus and thus electronegativity of the 18 electron shell is increased.
3.CuCl is covalent and NaCl is ionic
4.All are correct statements
The molecule MLx is planar with six pairs of electrons around M in the valence shell. The value of x is
