The halide of a metal MX crystalizes as ccp structure (NaCl type). If all the atoms situated at one of the tetrad axis are removed then what will be the simplest molecular formula of halide
a) MX
b) M3X4
c) MX2
d) MX3

Dear Student,

The computation is expressed below,

NaCl representation is,

No.of 'M' atoms = (8×18)+(4×12)=1+2=3No.of "X" atoms = (12×14)+(1×1)=3+1=4Hence the atom is M3X4Answer is Option (B)
