Correct answer: Choice C: the oxygen and hydrogenReason: When a metal bonds with a non-metal, the bond that is formed due to the transfer of electrons from a metal is not metal. This bond is known as ionic bond. On the other hand, when two non-metal elements are of bonuses, there is no sharing of electrons. And the complex thus formed is referred to as molecular compound. In the present case, both the oxygen and the hydrogen are not metal. Therefore, the complex thus formed (H2O), is called a molecular compound.
