(a) (i) N2O5 :


(ii) HCIO4 :

(b) (i) H2S is more acidic than H2O because bond dissociation enthalpy of H-S bond in H2S is less than that of H-O bond in H2O.

(ii) F is the most electronegative element. It has no d-orbitals and therefore, there is no scope for any electron promotion. So it can only show oxidation state of -1 in its compounds. 

(iii) Helium has very high ionisation enthalpy and no vacant d-orbitals, therefore no chemical compound of helium is known.
