O- has 9 electrons in total as:1s2 2s2 2p5And o2- is having 10 Electrons as:1s2 2s2 2p6Thus o2- has its octet complete but as there is one electron more and number of protons are same thus attractive force by nucleus on a electron of o2- will be less as compared to o-. Thus ionic radii of o2- is more than that of o-
