Which of the following ligands can be polydentate? If the ligand can be polydentate, give the maximum number of places on the ligand that can bind simultaneously to a single metal center: (a) HN(CH2CH2NH2)2; (b) CO3 2; (c) H2O;(d) oxalate.
What does 'polydentate' mean?

I believe that polydentate refers to ligands that are bonded with more than one atom.
