Among the following isostructural compounds,identify the compound which has the highest lattice energy

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;LiF&(b)\; NaCl\\(c)\;LiCl&(d)\;MgO\end{array}$

1 Answer

Lattice energy is proportional to the product of charges as either ions and inversely related to the distance between then greater the charge and small in size,greater is the lattice energy.
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
