Why don't metals break when pounded into sheets or drawn into wires?
A)The electrons in metals are shared so that the bond between them is to strong to be broken by pounding.
B)The electrons in metals allow the cations to slide past and thereby reduce the repulsive force between them.
C)The electrons in metals are either given up or taken up while bonding, creating a bond too strong to be broken by pounding.
D)They form molecules in which each atom is bonded to many other atoms, forming a sturdy structure which doesn't break on pounding.
E)They form molecules which have a very high boiling and

B. The electrons in metals allow the cations to slide past and thereby reduce the repulsive force between them.
this makes the most sense because the bonds between metals is usually metallic and metals usually have delocalised (free) electrons.

yes B should be the answer.
@Rushwr can you explain and give more points....?
