    Bah can't be bothered to think of anything sensible. How many elements can you think of with 5 syllable names?
    Really.....

    Well Gadolinium is one!

    I was trying to find a 6 syllable one but don't think any exist. There are lots of 5 syllable ones though.

    Yeah, half of the heavier elements are 5 syllable. Can't find a 6 syllable either. Think the one with the longest name is Rf but thats still 5 syllable.



    Also, is this what this quiz has come too...... a year 6 english class!


    So, a more taxing question!

    Which element is found, in it's most common allotrope, as a X4 tetrahedron?

    My element is the element with the lowest atomic number that has no stable isotopes.

    (In case I'm not online for the next couple of hours to confirm the correct answer, I'm sure you guys know what is, so just move on. )

    Woooo, thats was without looking!

    Which element am I thinking of....

    Chemistry dominated by +3 chemistry. Unusually for it's series it exhibits some +4 chemistry. +4 compounds are used as a very powerful one electron oxidant.

    Does anyone wanna guess what element has the highest density (metal), without referring to Google?
    I recall Osmium from my chemistry quiz days...
