26. In the atom of an element X, 6 electrons are present in the outermost shell. If it acquires noble gas configuration by accepting requisite number of electrons, then what would be the charge on the ion so formed?

Charge of an ion = –2, because atom will gain 2 electrons to get noble gas configuration.
