# In response to a question, a student stated that in an atom, the number of protons is greater than the number of neutrons, which in turn is greater than the number of electrons. Do you agree with the statement? Justify your answer.

The given statement is

**incorrect.****According to this statement p > n > e which is not possible.**

The number of protons is never greater than the number of neutrons.

The number of neutrons can be equal to or greater than the number of protons because the mass number is equal to double the atomic number or greater than double the atomic number.

Moreover, the number of neutrons can be greater than the number of electrons because number of electrons = the number of protons (e = p)in the neutral atom.
