Arrange the anions Cl 1-,Br 1- ,N 3-,and O 2- in order of
increasing polarizability and give reasons for your decisions.

O, N, Cl, Br. Since O is the most electronegative it is the least polarizable(most difficult to remove electrons from. N is slightly less electronegative than O, and Cl and Br are easy to polarize since they are much larger.
