Write the number of periods the Modern Periodic Table has. State the changes in valency and metallic character of elements as we move from left to right in

a period. Also state the changes, if any, in the valency and atomic size of elements as we move down a group.


The modern periodic table has seven periods. On moving from left to right in the periodic table, the metallic character of elements decreases, while the valency first increases from 1 to 4 and then decreases to 0 (zero). On moving down the group, the atomic size of the elements ​increases, but the valency remains the same.
