State if the given statement is correct or incorrect.

The given statement is incorrect. Atomic radius increases as we down a group. Across a period, valence electrons are added as we move from left to right. This increases the net charge difference in an atom and as a result the electrons are pulled more tightly leading to shrinking of radius as we move across the period.
