    Answer: Compound that has the smallest ions with the greatest charge.

    Explanation: Ionic compounds are formed by the combination of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions held together by electrostatic forces.

    According to Coulombic:

    [tex]Forcepropto frac{q_1q_2}{r}[/tex]

    where [tex]q_1[/tex] and [tex]q_2[/tex] are the charges and r is the distance between the two charges

    As force is directly proportional to charges and inversely proportional to distance between charges, strongest forces will be there when charges are greatest and sizes are small.

    Answer: Option (c) is the correct answer.

    Explanation:

    A positive charge is attracted towards a negatively charged ion and the force with which they are attracted towards each other is electrostatic force of attraction.

    According to coulomb’s law, force is directly proportional to the product of charges and inversely proportional to the square of distance between them.

    Mathematically, F [tex]propto frac{q_{1}q_{2}}{r^{2}}[/tex]

    Therefore, smaller is the size of ions greater will be its charge and more strong the ions will be held together.

    Thus, we can conclude that the compound that has the smallest ions with the greatest charge would be expected to have the strongest ionic bonds.
