    The correct answer is the option: Iron (II) ion.

    Explanation:

    Hello! Let's solve this!

    El Hierro (Fe) has two valence numbers. Fe + 2 and Fe + 3.

    The + 2 and + 3 indicate that iron lost two or three electrons respectively.

    In this case the ion is Fe + 2, this cation is called the Iron (II) ion

    We conclude that the correct answer is the option: Iron (II) ion.
