Answer:

#KBr#

Explanation:

#KBr# #=# #K^(+)Br^(-)#

If you look at the position of potassium and bromine on the Periodic Table, you find that potassium is in Group I (under sodium), and the halogen is in Group 17, under chlorine. This is excellent indication that the structures and bonding should be similar to that of sodium chloride.
