I have a question showing a table that displays isotopic mass and % abundance, of "Metal A", the question goes on to ask
"What analytical method is used to obtain this information?"
Is "Mass spectroscopy" the correct way to word my answer? Or do I have it wrong? (It is 1 mark)

Sadly no.

The correct term would be 'Mass Spectrometry'

The word spectroscopy refers to the interaction of radiation with matter, so Mass Spectrometry is not a form of spectroscopy because it doesn't involve any such interaction.
