The correct option is A True The metals have a closely packed structure and have a strong intermolecular force of attraction. To break these intermolecular force of attraction, more heat is required and therefore they have a high melting point except for some metals like gallium and caesium.
Whereas non-metals are held by weak intermolecular force of attraction, so less heat required to break them. As a result, they have low melting points. Thus option A is correct.
