Question:

In response to a question, a student stated that in an atom, the number of protons is greater than the number of neutrons, which in turn is greater than the number of electrons. Do you agree with the statement ? Justify your answer.

Solution:

The statement is wrong. In an atom, number of protons and electrons are always equal. These can be different only in an ion (positive or negative).
