MCQs on Periodic Classification of Elements

The periodic table is a systematic arrangement of all the known chemical elements. In the modern periodic table, the atoms are arranged with the increasing atomic number. There is a certain observable periodic trend of physical and chemical properties of elements in a group from top to bottom and in a period when we move from left to right. The periodic classification helps in determining the relationship between elements and predicts the chemical properties and behaviour of a newly discovered element.

(a) Li, Be, B

(b) H, He, Li

4. For the same value of n, the penetration power of orbital follows the order

(a) s = p = d = f
