  • Q:

    Research takes place on a different planet which contains entirely different elements from the planet Earth. The researcher constructs a periodic table based off of the extraterrestrial elements based on valence electrons (similar to the Earth periodic table). The researcher examines several atoms, and hopes to qualitatively describe their sizes. Of the following, for which position on the extraterrestrial periodic table would the largest element be found, assuming the size is only measured as atomic radius.

     

    A

    Period II, Group III

    B
