Name two elements you would expect to show chemical reactions similar to magnesium. What is the basis for your choice?

Advertisements

Solution

Calcium (Ca) and strontium (Sr) are expected to show chemical reactions similar to magnesium (Mg). This is because the number of valence electrons (2) is same in all these three elements and since chemical properties are due to valence electrons, they show same chemical reactions.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
