1. Explain the variation pattern in oxidation states of(i) C to Pb(ii) B to Tl Answer: (i) C to PbThe electronic configuration of group 14 elements is ns2 np2. Hence, the most common oxidation state exhibited by them should be +4. On moving down the group, the +2 oxidation state becomes more and more common and …
