Size of the anion is larger than the size of parent atom. Explain.


Ans: The size of anion is larger than the size of parent atom because anions are formed due to gain of electrons. When the electrons increases, there are still the same number of protons. This causes the electrons to not be bound tightly to the nucleus like earlier and results in an increase atomic size.
