Question

Given below is a table containing a few metals and nonmetals with exceptional properties. Fill the dark spaces by identifying X, Y and Z in the table.

  1. X - Carbon (C); Y - Non-metal; Z - Lustrous
  2. X - Silver (Ag); Y - Metal; Z - Ductile
  3. X - Gallium (Ga); Y - Metal; Z - Lustrous
  4. X - Gallium (Ga); Y - Metal; Z - Sonorous


Solution

The correct option is C X - Gallium (Ga); Y - Metal; Z - Lustrous
Iodine is a non-metal but is lustrous. Alkali metals (Li, Na, K) are so soft that they can be cut with a knife. They have low densities and low melting points. Of all the metals in the periodic table, Gallium (29.76 °C) and Cesium (28.44 °C) have very low melting points that they can melt even at room temperature.
