    A new element, Uuo, is one of the elements in Group 18. Which of the following correctly states how many valence electrons would be expected in an atom of the element Uuo in the ground state and provides the best reasoning?
    • A. 

      7 valence electrons, since elements in Group 18 tend to have 7 valence electrons, so Uuo also has 7 valence electrons, since it's also a member of Group 18.

    • B. 

      8 valence electrons, since elements in Group 18 tend to have 8 valence electrons, so Uuo also has 8 valence electrons, since it's also a member of Group 18.

    • C. 

      6 valence electrons, since elements in Group 18 tend to have 6 valence electrons, so Uuo also has 6 valence electrons, since it's also a member of Group 18.

    • D. 

      Both (A) and (C)

  • 6.
