How are ionic and covalent bonds similar? both result in filled valence shells for the atoms involved both involve sharing electrons both involve the formation of anions and cations both have high melting points

A is the best possible...because they in ionic electron is transferred not shared. as for C..only ionic bonding causes formation of negetive or positive ions...and D is wrong cuz many compounds which have covalent bonds have low mp..

hint: ionic bond is implied by a electrons transfer, from one atom to other atom of the bonded system, those electrons belong to the outermost shell of the first atom whereas: covalent bond is implied by a sharing of some electrons between the atoms which are involved in the new bonded system (molecule). Again the shared electrons belong to the outermost shell of each atom of the new molecule
