Solution 1

Zinc is not considered a transition element because it does not have partly filled(or incomplete) d-subshell. It has 3d-subshell full filled.

Solution 2

Transition metals show vacant d-orbitals but Zn metal has completely filled d-orbitals.

∴ Zn is not regarded as the transition element.
