List in tabular from three chemical properties on the basis of which we can differentiate between a metal and a non-metal.
|1.||Metals react with oxygen to produce basic oxides.||1.||Non-Metals react with oxygen to produce acidic or neutral oxides.|
|2.||Metals react with water to produce metal hydroxide and hydrogen gas.||2.||Non-Metals do not react with water to produce hydrogen gas.|
|3.||Generally, metals do not combine with hydrogen except sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium which form ionic hydrides on reacting with hydrogen||3.||Non-Metals react with hydrogen to form covalent hydrides.|
