Solution

The correct option is A

ductility


  • Ductility is the ability of a metal to be drawn into wires.
  • While malleability is the ability of a metal to be beaten into sheets.
  • When a metal is struck, it produces a deep resonant sound, which is known as sonority.
  • Conductivity in metal is a measure of a material's ability to allow heat, or electricity to pass through.

Thus, the property of gold by which it can be drawn into a wire of about 2 km is ductility.
