The correct answer to this question is Zn. Zinc is a chemical element, which has a silver/ gray appearance. Its' atomic number is 30, and it is group 12 of the periodic table. It is the first element in group 12. It is closely related to fellow element magnesium.

This is because they are about the same size and only have one oxidation state. Zinc can be found in many items, including brass, galvanizing, and bronze. It is most known as an agent for anti-corrosion. In the year 2009 alone, 893,000 tons of zinc metal was used for this purpose.

Zinc is traditionally denoted as Zn and therefore, the chemical symbol of zinc is Zn. It is a transition metal. Zinc has an atomic number of 30.

Zinc is similar to magnesium in chemical structure as both elements exhibit just one normal oxidation state of plus two (+2).

Zinc is brittle at room temperature and it becomes malleable when it gets above 100 degree Celsius.
Zinc belongs to group 12 elements, 4th period and the d block on the periodic table. Zinc is commonly used in galvanization when other metals are subjected to rusting.
