Solution

The modern periodic table has seven periods.

On moving from left to right in the periodic table, the metallic character of elements decreases, while the valency first increases from 1 to 4 and then decreases to 0 (zero).

On moving down the group, the atomic size of the elements ​increases, but the valency remains the same.
