[B]. nucleus
[C]. heavier element
[D]. compound

Answer: Option A

That means when a electron gives a element to other one it get possitive charged. That means called as charged ion.

Yoga said: (Dec 23, 2010)  
The nucleus of atom consists of proton, electron and neutron. So when we remove neutron we get positively charged.

Ashu said: (Jan 14, 2011)  
Non neutral means it is not a proton, but it can be an electron or a proton. An atom can't lose or gain a proton but it can gain or lose an electron. For example if hydrogen element loses an electron a hydride ion is formed whereas if it gains an electron to complete its duplet hydrogen ion is formed. Therefore in both the cases a charged ion is formed may be positive or negative.

Removal of proton or electron makes atom in to negative or positive ion respectively.

@ yoga. You are completely wrong.

Nucleus of atom contains only protons (+ve) and neutrons (neutral) and electrons which revolve around nucleus (-ve).

Whenever a non neutral charge is removed it is positively or negatively charged accordingly when either proton or electrons are removed.

Thus its a charged ion.

@mallikarjun:u r absolutely ryt...

Naazneen said: (May 24, 2011)  

You are absolutely correct.

Tushar said: (Sep 1, 2011)  
No he is partially correct.

Non neutral charge are:.

1. Electrons.

2. Protons.

But only electrons can be removed not the protons.

Hence it becomes +vely charged.

Meera said: (Sep 16, 2011)  
Ya Tushar is correct. When electrons are removed it becomes +vely charged if the electrons are added it becomes -vely charged.

Thanks all for good discussion.

Goutham said: (Dec 27, 2011)  
Ya TUSHAR is correct.

Aravinda Gb said: (Sep 25, 2012)  
* electrons are -ve charged so we added to its -ve answer, not the protons.

Ganesh Kumar said: (Sep 28, 2012)  
An atom is naturally stable when an electron leave from valance band it gets positively charged.

Gmkumar said: (Jun 21, 2013)  
Electrons and protons are not neutral charge. That are denoted as -ve and +ve charges.

Ragaviganesan said: (Sep 4, 2013)  
Atoms contain Electron, proton, neutron. These elements made atom neutral in nature. So, on removal of any one of those results in formation of charged ion.

Renu said: (Sep 7, 2013)  
We cannot able to remove protons. Only we can able to remove electrons. So only +ve or -ve ions are formed.

Shrutika said: (Dec 24, 2013)  
Please tell me about subatomic particle?

Sujata said: (Feb 15, 2014)  
Subatomic particles are particles smaller than atoms. (although some subatomic particles have mass greater than atoms).

Shivleela said: (Aug 4, 2014)  
Non neutral means except neutron and others hv charges also only electron can donate or accept.

Rashmi said: (Jun 22, 2015)  
Neutron means than equal number of holes and electrons in an atom when a hole or an electron is removed or added than valance forms an ion.

Nagaraju said: (Jun 29, 2016)  
Hi, everyone.

Non neutral subatomics are protons and electrons. If an electron removed from an atom it undergone positive charge, when an electron added to atom then it get negative charge. Either it is positive or negative totally it is a charged ion.
If we add or remove protons from an atom. That atom changes completely to next element in periodic table.

Example : If hydrogen gets a proton in addition then it changes to helium of positively charged. Why because this new helium atom consists of just one electron. But as per given options. Only first one follows this.

Nice explanation, thanks @Nagaraju.
