Hey guys so the bit in blue doesn't rlly make sense - shouldn't it be the other way round where group 1 hydroxides have a lower pH than group 2 hydroxides?

Group 2 hydroxides are more soluble in water as you go down group 2 which means grp 2 hydroxides like Mg(OH)2 are sparingly soluble in water so don't have a higher pH than the grp1 metal hydroxides broadly speaking.

Hey thanks a lot so are group 1 metal hydroxides more soluble than group 2 metal hydroxides in the same period always?
