QUESTION: 1

### Which of the following elements would lose an electron easily ?

Solution:

As we move down a group in the periodic table, the tendency to lose electron increases.
Also when we move from left to right in a period, the tendency to lose electrons decreases. Combining these two results, K will lose the electron most easily.

QUESTION: 2

### Which of the following is non-metal and to which group does it belong?

Solution:

Bromine is a non-metal, belongs to group 17.

QUESTION: 3

### Which one of the following depict the correct representation of atomic radius (r) of an atom ?    Solution:

Atomic radius is the distance between the centre of the nucleus and the outermost shell which contains electrons in an isolated atom. Figure (ii) and (iii) are the correct representation of atomic radius from nucleus to the outermost shell.

QUESTION: 4

Solution:

It is metalloid.

QUESTION: 5

According to Mendeleev’s Periodic Law, the elements were arranged in the periodic table in the order of

Solution:

According to Mendeleev's periodic law , the properties of an elements are the function of their atomic masses...

This means that when elements are arranged in the order of increasing number of atomic masses , the properties of elements repeats after a period or intervals...

QUESTION: 6

(iii) Isotopes are placed in adjoining group(s) in the Periodic Table.
(iv) The elements in the Modern Periodic Table are arranged on the basis of their increasing atomic number.

Solution:

Only the statement (iv) that in the Modern Periodic Table, the elements are arranged on the basis of increasing atomic number.

QUESTION: 8
