Answer

NO - Nitrogen Monoxide

Work Step by Step

1. First, begin by writing the name of the first element. N -Nitrogen 2. Since, NO is a molecular compound (two non-metals joined together), we have to use the appropriate prefix for the second element. 3. Note that the second element , oxygen, has just one atom. This means we have to use the prefix "mono" and change oxygen's ending to oxide. 4. Combine the two names to get: $$Nitrogen Monoxide$$
