Expert Answer:

Electrons in ClO- :    Cl = 7 valence electron, O = 6 electron, negative charge = 1 electron, so it has 14 electrons.
 
 F2, Cl2, Br2, I2, all will have 14 valence electrons, so they will be isoelectronic with ClO-. Other possibilities include interhalogens compounds,ClF, BrF, IF, ClBr, ICl, IBr.
