Why is zinc

Answer :

• A transition element is defined as that which has a partially filled d-orbital and is capable of giving rise to cations.


• Zinc has a fully filled configuration of 3d10 4s2. This makes it unavailable for formation of cations.


• Thus, zinc is not regarded as a transition element.
