    -Compounds are molecules.
    Sometimes always

    -Mercury is an element.
    Always OK

    -Ions possess charges.

    Hmmm...I keep trying these answers, but it says it's wrong. I'm not sure why...

  • Chemistry -

    Oh I see, the answer to "compounds are molecules" was in fact "Sometimes." Not exactly sure why, though...

  • Chemistry -

    The difference may be semantic. Compounds ALWAYS CONSIST of molecules but you may only SOMETIMES have a single molecule of a compound.
    That may be the problem.

    Ahh ok I see. Thanks for the help!
