Sol. Answer (1)
NaCl becomes paramagnetic at high temperature in the presence of Na  vapour due to migration of Cl ^{–} ion to the surface from lattice by which vacancy is produced known as Fcentre in which e ^{–} is trapped from outer Na vapour i.e., some free electrons comes in lattice that’s why it becomes paramagnetic.
