# During the formation of a molecular orbital from atomic orbitals , the electron density is

$(a)\;\text { Zero is the nodal plane} \\ (b)\;\text{maximum in the nodal plane} \\(c)\;\text{minimum in the nodal plane} \\(d)\;\text{Zero on the surface of the lobe }$

The amplitude of the wave function is zero, and hence the probability of finding an electron in the region concerned is almost zero.
Hence a is the correct answer.
