First member of each group of representative elements (i.e., s and p-block elements) shows anomalous behaviour. Illustrate with two examples.

Answer :

First member of each group of representative elements (i.e., s and p-block elements) shows anomalous behaviour due to the following reasons:


• Due to small atomic size


• D-orbitals are absent.


• Ionisation enthalpy


• Electron gain enthalpy
