1.explain why chlorine is converted into chloride more easily than flouride from flourine
  2. why 2nd ionisation enthalpy of boron is significantly higher than the second ionisation enthalpy of carbon,
even though the 1st ionisation enthalpy of boron is less than that of carbon

Dear patidarshm@gmail.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

In case of multiple questions within a query, please post each question individually and let us know where you are getting stuck so that we would be able to explain things better.
Solution for your first query,
Due to small size of fluorine, the electron affinitty of chlorone is higher than fluorine despite fluorine being the mist electronegative in the periodic table.
Hence, chloride ion can be formed more easily than fluoride ion.
