Write the most likely charge for the ions formed each of the following elements.
How would I determine how many electrons Te would gain or lose if it's a metalloid?

Well, looking at a periodic table shows tellurium is two groups away from the noble gas of Xenon so theoretically, the most likely charge for Te should be Te2- since it will want to gain 2 electrons to complete its octet to be like Xenon.
