Metal atoms tend to give away valence electrons when they bond with nonmetal atoms. What type of bond will form between the metal and nonmetal atoms and why does this bond form?

1. A covalent bond will form because electrons are transferred.

1. An ionic bond will form because electrons are transferred.

1. A covalent bond will form because electrons are shared.

1. An ionic bond will form because electrons are shared.
