Solution

Vertical columns of the periodic table are known as groups.

(i) The number of valence electrons remains constant when we move down the group.

(ii) The number of occupied shells increases down the group.

(iii) The size of atoms increases down the group.

(iv) The metallic character of elements increases down the group.

(v) The effective nuclear charge decreases down the group.
