Solution

(i) 18Ar and 2He are very stable elements, as their valance shells are completely filled. They belong to the group of inert or noble gases.

(ii) 20Ca and 4Be are the two elements that belong to group 2 of the periodic table. This is because their valency is 2 and they are electropositive.

(iii) 8O (2,6) and 16S (2,8,6) are the two elements that belong to group 16 of the periodic table.
      Group number = Valence shell + 10
                               = 6 + 10 = 16

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
