In periodic table, the basic character of oxides (A) Increases from left to right and decrease from top to bottom (B) Decreases from right to left and increases from top to bottom (C) Decreases from left to right and increases from top to bottom (D) Decreases from left to right and increases from bottom to top

Decreases from left to right and increases from top to bottom

On moving along a period, the tendency to lose electrons decreases. Hence, the metallic character decreases. Since the oxides of non-metals are acidic. So, it can be said, along a period from left to right basic character decreases while on moving downward, the basic character increases due to an increase in metallic character.

Therefore, the correct option is (C)
