Answer:

The statement which is true about Atom A and Atom B is; Choice B: Atom B will give up electrons to form bonds.

According to the question;

For Atom A:

  • It has 7 electrons
  • the electron configuration is; 1s²2s²2p³
  • Therefore, it has 5 valence electrons.

For atom B:

  • It has 13 electrons
  • the electron configuration is; 1s²2s²2p⁶3s²3p¹
  • Therefore, it has 3 valence electrons.

Since, electrons need 8 electrons to assume a full octet;

Consequently, Atom B will give up electrons to become stable.
