boooring chemistry!!:(

Why do the halogens easily form ionic and covalent bonds?

Can someone explain this to me?! :(

  1. Halogens are non-metals and if observed they form ionic bonds with metal because halogens have a high ionization energy to attract the metals. if you don't know what ionization energy is it means the energy need to to remove the electrons from an atom. Halogens also form covalent bonds with non-metals because they share the valence electrons.

    Good luck in chem!
