Two molecular ions are produced and they are charged negatively.

#### Work Step by Step

We can find the net charge: $Q = (3)(+2)+(2)(-3)+(1)(-2)$ $Q = -2$ Since multiple molecular ions have a charge of $e$, this charge must be $e = -1$ and there must be 2 molecular ions with a charge of $-1$ Therefore, two molecular ions are produced and they are charged negatively.
