Discuss the formation of potassium chloride and carbon tetra chloride molecule on the basis of electronic theory of valency

potassium has 1 electron in its valence shell and chlorine has 7 electrons in its valence shell. In the same manner as electronic theory of valency states that every element has tendency to attain stable electronic configuration (octet state), potassium losses 1 electron while chlorine gains 1 electron, thus both achieving octet state by forming KCl.
Similarly, in the case of carbon tetrachloride, 1 carbon atom has 4 electrons in its valence shell while chlorine atom has 7 electrons in its valence shell. As electronic theory of valency states that every element has tendency to attain stable electronic configuration (octet state), 4 chlorine atoms react with 1 carbon by “sharing valence shell electrons”. Thus, both attain octet state by forming CCl4.
