Element x forms a chloride with the formula xcl2, Which is a solid with a high melting point. Element x will belong to which group of periodic table?



It belongs to group 2nd according to me bcz as it makes the formula xcl2 it means its valency is 2 so either it belongs to group 2 or 16 but as it is given that it is solid and has a high melting point so it should be a metal so from all this we can conclude that it belongs to group 2nd
