Solution: Which of the following statement is  true?The electronegativity of an atom is defined as electron affinity of the atom.The electronegativity of an atom depends only on the value of the ionization energy of the atom.Atoms with high ionization energies and high electron affinities have low electronegativites.Atoms with low ionization energies and low electron affinities have low electronegativites.Atoms with low ionization energies and low electron affinities have high electronegativities.
