  1. The atomic radii of the elements from left to right in the periodic table _____.

A. Decreases

B. Increases

C. Remain constant

D. First decreases and then increases


Answer Key:

  1. D

Explanation: All the elements belonging to the same group have the same number of electrons.

  1. A

Explanation: Ionic bond is formed when there is large difference of electro-negativities between the atoms.

  1. D

Explanation: Be : 1s2 2s2 Beryllium belongs to group 2. It will have 2 electrons in the valence shell.

  1. C

Explanation: Elements on the right side of the periodic table

are mostly non-metals.

  1. A

Explanation: Continuously decreases as the effective nuclear charge increases.

  1. A

Explanation: Size of atom increases down the group.

  1. C

Explanation: Be > C > F > Ne. Atomic size decreases across a period.

  1. C

Explanation: Halogens form anions most easily as they require only one electron to complete their octet.

  1. C

Explanation: Atomic radii are expressed in Å units.

  1. B
