    Most of the tym carbon shares it's electrons with other atom/(s)

    a. it forms ionic bonds by sharing electrons b. it forms covalent bonds by donation electrons c. it forms covalent bonds by sharing electrons

    Actually it won't form ionic bonds. Covalent bonds are formed by sharing electrons . SO I would go with C

    It might form ionic bonds but not by sharing electrons because then the bond wont be ionic. also it cannot form a covalent bond by donating electrons because that is not how covalent bonds work so it is C.

    Formation of ionic bonds here is highly unfavorable so it is very rare.
