    I don't really get what I'm meant to put for the answer.
    The question gives us 4 figures of Li-Ne graphs, I've picked the right one. But then it says "Why have you chosen this figure, referring in your answer to both the general trend and any irregularities."
    I don't know what to explain for the general trend and irregularities, if anyone could shed some light or provide assistance I'd appreciate it a bunch

    No it increases remember! The number of protons is increasing so a stronger nuclear attraction. Yeah?

    And for the irregularities, between which 2 groups are there irregularities in that trend in Figure 2? (2 answers)
