Some previous year solved questions are given below:

Question 1:

Which of the following statements regarding Lanthanides is false?

(a) All lanthanides are solid at room temperature.

(b) Their usual oxidation state is +3

(c) They can be separated from one another by ion-exchange method.

(d) Ionic radii of trivalent lanthanides steadily increases with increase in atomic number.

Solution 1:

Lanthanide are reffered as rare earth metals. they are found in 6th period in periodic table. At room temperature all lanthanides are solid. They have usual oxidation state of +3. Also, they can be separated by ion exchange method.

Ionic radii of trivalent lanthanides steadily decreases with increase in atomic number and the phenomenon is known as Lanthanoid contraction.

Hence, the correct option is (d).

Question 2:

Which of the following arrangements is correct in respect to solubility in water?

(a) CaSO4 > BaSO4 > BeSO4 > MgSO4 > SrSO4

(b) BeSO4 > MgSO4 > CaSO4 > SrSO4 > BaSO4

(c) BaSO4 > SrSO4 > CaSO4 > MgSO4 > BeSO4

(d) BeSO4 > CaSO4 > MgSO4 > SrSO4 > BaSO4

Solution 2:

In a group the solubility in water decreases down the group due to increase in ionic size.

So, the correct order of solubility in water is:

Be2+ < Mg2+ < Ca2+ < Sr2+ < Ba2+

Hence, the correct option is (b).

Question 3:

An element X belongs to fourth period and fifteenth group of the periodic table. Which of the following statements is true?

(a) It has a completely filled s-orbital and a partially filled d-orbital.

(b) It has completely filled s-and p-orbitals and a partially filled d-orbital.

(c) It has completely filled s-and p-orbitals and a half filled d-orbital.

(d) It has a half filled p-orbital, and completely filled  s- and d-orbitals.

Solution 3:

The element that belong to fourth period and fifteenth group of the periodic table is Arsenic.

The electronic configuration of Arsenic is:

As33: [Ar]4s23d104p3

Hence, the correct option is (d).

Question 4:

Which one has the highest boiling point?

(a) He

(b) Ne

(c) Kr

(d) Xe

Solution 4:

As we move down the group of noble gases, molecular mass increases by which dipole produced for a moment and hence London forces increases from He to Xe.

Therefore, more amount of energy is required to break these forces, thus boiling point also increases from He and Xe.

Hence, the correct option is (d).

Question 5:

Which one of the following arrangements represents the correct order of electron gain enthalpy

(with negative sign) of the given atomic species?

(a) CI < F < S < CO

(b) CO < S < F < CI

(C) S  < CO < CI < F

(d) F < CI < CO < S

Solution 5:

Election Gain enthalpy: It is the energy released when one mole of electrons is added to gaseous atoms of an element. Generally electron gain enthalpy increases in a period from left to right but decreases in a group on moving down.

Fluorine due to its smaller size has unexpectedly low electron gain enthalpy than Cl.

Similar is shown in case of CO and S. Thus, the order of electron gain enthalpy is

CO < S < F < CI

Hence, the correct option is (b).
