No other elements occur independently except for noble gases. The attractive force by which ions, molecules, and atoms are held together is referred to as a chemical bond. The atom tends to gain stability with its octet completion. Besides, by an ionic bond, the oppositely charged ions are held together. Electron pairs are shared in a covalent bond. Molecules in a crystalline structure are held together by the weak Van der Waal’s interaction.

In the periodic table, the highly electropositive alkali metals and the highly electronegative halogens are separated by the noble gases.

The negative ion formation from a halogen atom and formation of a positive ion from an alkali metal atom is associated with the loss and gain of an electron by the respective atoms.

The chemical bonding and molecular structure MCQs can help students get a clear understanding of the concept. Let us look at the chemical bonding questions for NEET. A few of the chemical bonding NEET questions are given below.
