NEET 2013

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Which of the following is a polar molecule?
A
SiF4
B
XeF4
C
BF3
D
SF4

Explanation



The given molecules SiF4, XeF4, and BF3 are symmetric molecules that is why due to cancellation of bond dipoles they are non-polar even though they contain polar bonds.

But in SiF4 there are four Si—F bonds and one lone pair due to which its structure is unsymmetrical. Hence, it is a polar molecule.

NEET 2013 (Karnataka)

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
The pair of species that has the same bond order in the following is
A
CO, NO+
B
NO$$-$$, CN$$-$$
C
O2, N2
D
O2, B2

Explanation

CO = + 8 = 14 electrons
NO+ = 7 + 8 - 1 = 14 electrons
Both have electronic configuration:
$$\sigma 1s^2$$ $$\sigma^* 1s^2$$ $$\sigma 2s^2$$ $$\sigma^* 2s^2$$ $$\sigma 2p_z^2$$ $$\sigma 2p_x^2$$ $$\sigma 2p_y^2$$
Bond order = $$10 - 4 \over 2$$ = 3
