Answer:

A molecule of endosulphan contains six chlorine atoms.

Explanation:

In 1 molecule of endosulphan,

#"Mass of Cl" = 407 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("u endosulphan")))× "53.3 u Cl"/(100 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("u endosulphan")))) = "214.6 u Cl"#

#"No. of Cl atoms" = 214.6 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("u Cl"))) × "1 atom Cl"/(35.45 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("u Cl")))) = "6.06 atoms Cl" ≈ "6 atoms Cl"#
