When atoms share electrons to gain the_____ configuration of a noble gas, the bonds formed are______.

Atoms lose and gain electrons to form electron configurations like a noble gas (octet in the outer shell). Atoms share electrons to form the octet in forming a covalent bond. The words that go in the blanks are octet and covalent. In future posts please indicate what you think the answer is and it would help if you stated why you think your suggested answer(s) is/are correct. This is not a "fill in the blank and do all of your homework" site.
