That was exactly my first guess. Maybe there is some other classification for those three?

elements who are 1 electron removed from having a complete octet?

That's another thing that I was thinking of. Maybe it wants them classified as ions?

i don't think so

no, i don't think so. A ion of chlorine would be a chloride ion so that won't work. My best guess would be elements.
