    In comparing covalent bonds and ionic bonds, which of the following would you expect?


    a)A) An atom can form covalent bonds with multiple partner atoms, but only a single ionic bond with a single partner atom.
    b)B) Covalent bonds and ionic bonds occupy opposite ends of a continuous spectrum, from nearly equal to completely unequal sharing of electrons.
    c)C) Both involve electrical attraction between the electrons of one atom and the nucleus of the other atom
    d)D) Ionic interactions remain when covalent bonds are broken in water. Ionic bonds are much stronger than covalent bonds.
