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.
