    1. NO! it is not B
    The atomic number is number of protons.
    The atomic mass is protons plus neutrons.
    The mass of electrons is tiny in comparison
    2. If they were less stable in combined form why would they combine?

    Yes, what I said agrees with her aunt luckily. Although my undergraduate degree is in physics my doctorate is in engineering and I was an engineering professor at MIT :)

    A is true, and I am sure that is what her aunt said. However the question is what is NOT true.

    I dont know about you... BUT! Just cause you say you're a retired professor doesn't mean you are, not that I am saying you're not and that you are wrong. You might be who you say you are. But now that I am looking at the dates you're messages were send I am having second thoughts, are you sure you're not the same person?
