Textbook Question

Using the molecular orbital energy ordering for second-row homonuclear diatomic molecules in which the p2p orbitals lie at higher energy than the s2p, draw MO energy diagrams and predict the bond order in a molecule or ion with each number of total valence electrons. Will the molecule or ion be diamagnetic or paramagnetic? c. 13
