Expert Answer:

Electropositive means that the element has the tendency to loose electron, and form positive ion that is cation. Such elements will have low ionisation energy  and weak nuclear pull.

Electronegative means to add electron and form negative ion that is anion. These have high electron affinity and nuclear pull to add electron
