2D.3

For question 2D.3 from the 7th edition, do you need to know the electronegativity values of the elements and calculate the differences in electronegativity in order to determine which compounds are primarily ionic?

You only need to look at the trends. I don't think we get access to actual values, so we use trends to estimate which compounds have higher ionic character.
