Answer; 1. positive ionExplanation;-ion forms when an atom loses or gains electrons. A positively charged ion (cation) is formed when an atom loses electrons and negatively charged ions (anions) are formed when an atom gains electrons. Therefore, if an atom loses two electrons, it forms a positively charged ion with a charge of +2.
