Answer

The correct option is B: Cations.

A sodium atom has one electron in its outermost shell (M shell). When this electron is lost, the M shell is no longer the outermost shell, making the L shell the new outermost shell with a stable octet configuration. As a result, Na forms a cation very easily.
