    A. Organic means it has carbon in, so no. D. Means there are two atoms, so no. Ionic bonding is when the outer shell electron is 'given' to the other atom. As calcium has two outer electrons, it gives one to one chlorine atom, one to another. This technically means the Ca is a C2+ ion, and the Chlorine are Cl- ions. The positive and negative charges attract, bonding the atoms together. So it IS C! (D. This is when two atome have to 'share' one electron in their outer shells.)
