Metals And Non-metals Basic Quiz! Test

Welcome to the Metals and Non-Metals Basic Quiz. Elements can be described as either metal or nonmetal, with one key difference being how metals look. Most of the nonmetals except for hydrogen can be found on the right side of the periodic table. While metals are good conductors of electricity, nonmetals are not. By taking this quiz, you will get to test out just how well you know the difference between elements that fall between these two groups.
