Expert Answer:

According to Molecular Orbital theory, only those molecule can exists which have net positive bond order while the molecules with negative or zero bond order will not exists.

In case of Ne2   molecule, since, Ne atom has 10 electrons so total electrons are 20 the configuration is given as:

KK [σ(2s) 2 ][σ * (2s) 2 ] [π (2 x ) 2 ] [π (2py ) 2 ] [σ (2p z ) 2] [π * (2px ) 2 ] [π * (2p y2 ] [σ * (2pz2 ]
