Correct Answer - Option 1 : Fluroine
Super halogen is a halogen which has high electronegativity and high reactivity. Since Fluroine is highly reactive, it is a super halogen.
Fluorine is the most electro-negative element among all other halogens.
- The descending order of electronegativity in the halogens is F>Cl>B>I>At>Ts.
- Electronegativity is defined as the ability of an atom in a chemical compound to attract a shared electron to itself.
- The group number 17 is known as the Halogen group.
- Halogen means "Salt-producing" as they produce salt when reacts with a metal.
The five natural halogen elements are;
- Fluorine(F), atomic number 9.
- Chlorine(Cl), atomic number 17.
- Bromine(Br), atomic number 35.
- Iodine(I), atomic number 53.
- Astatine(At), atomic number 85.
- Tennessine(Ts), is also a halogen element but it is artificially created. The atomic number of Ts is 117.
Thus we can conclude that Fluroine is called super halogen.
