MCQs on s-Block Elements for NEET

The first two groups of elements are known as s-Block elements. Elements with the last valence electron in the s orbital are grouped under s-Block elements. Elements with 1 electron in their outermost s orbital (ns1) are known as alkali metals and elements which have 2 electrons in their outermost s orbital (ns2) are known as alkaline earth metals.

Alkali metals: H, Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs, Fr

Alkaline earth metals: Be, Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba, Ra
