$\text{A molecule..............}$

#### Explanation:

Ions results from the transfer of electrons between atoms. Molecules result from the SHARING of electrons between atoms. Two electrons can form a covalent bond, a region of high electron density between 2 positively charged atomic nuclei such that electrostatic repulsion (between the nuclei) is negated, and a net attractive force results.
