Are ions the transformation of electrons??????Explain well & properly.......


Ions are formed by gaining or losing electrons. If any neutral atom gains an electron it will form the anion. Anions have excess electrons than what is present in their neutral state whereas if any neutral atom loses an electron it will form a cation, cations have fewer electrons as compared to the neutral atom. 

Hence, ions are formed due to the transformation of electrons, it is the gain or loss of electrons.
