    Hi,

    Do you mean Qs that ask you to compare certain elements in specific groups of the periodic table e.g. the fact that halogens that are higher up in the periodic table (have smaller atoms)e.g. fluorine are more reactive than those lower down e.g. iodine, so that e.g. fluorine will react with a metal iodide, giving the fluoride and iodine, and NOT the other way round i.e. that iodine will not react with e.g. potassium fluoride) as well as the reasons why?

    Please be more specific with your Q.
