Problem

Place the following in order of decreasing metallic character.

Si, K, S, Na, O

 

A.) Na > K > Si > O > S

B.) Na > K > Si > S > O

C.) K > Si > Na > S > O

D.) K > Si > Na > O > S

E.) K > Na > Si > S > O

Solution

We’re being asked to rank the given elements by decreasing metallic character.


Recall that the trend for metallic character is as follows: it decreases from left to right and increases down a period in the periodic table. 


The given elements are:
