A spinel is an important class of oxides consisting of two types of metal ions with the oxide ions arranged in ccp layers. The normal spinel has 1/8th of the tetrahedral void occupied  by one type of metal and one half of the octahedral voids occupied by another type of metal ions. Such a spinel is formed by Zn2+, Al3+ and O2- with Zn2+ in tetrahedral void. Give the simplest formula of the spinel.

1. ZnAl2O4

2. ZnAl2O3

3. ZnAlO
