23. d-block elements are the elements of group 3 to 12 in the centre of the periodic table. These are characterised by the filling of inner d-orbitals by electrons and are therefore referred to as d-block elements. These elements have the general outer electronic configuration (n – 1) d1-10 ns0-2. They are all metals. They generally form coloured ions, exhibit variable valence, paramagnetism and often used as catalyst.

Now answer the following questions :

(i) Explain why d-block elements have higher density than alkaline earth metals. [2]

(ii) Transition metals are less electropositive than alkaline earth metals. [Value Based Question] [2]
