I can't seem to understand why B is a compound not an element either. Since and element consist only one kind of atom, while a compound consists of atoms of two or more different elements bound together. Can someone please answer this because I am totally confused.

Thank you!

Thank You,

All due respect, but you are note are mess and you keep talking like a robot without so much elaboration. The atom is not something you see in your daily life so you can't talk like someone who is reciting bunch of common sense information
