    • D.

      Sodium (Na)

    Correct Answer
    C. Hydrogen (H)
    Explanation
    Hydrogen (H) is the first element in the periodic table because it has the lowest atomic number of all the elements. The periodic table is arranged in order of increasing atomic number, which corresponds to the number of protons in an atom's nucleus. Hydrogen has an atomic number of 1, meaning it has only one proton. Therefore, it is the first element in the periodic table.

    What is one of the negative qualities of the element of water?

    • A.

      Dishonesty

    • B.

      Laziness

    • C.

      Superficiality

    • D.

      Jealousy

    Correct Answer
    B. Laziness
    Explanation
    Laziness can be considered a negative quality of the element of water because water is often associated with movement, flow, and adaptability. Laziness implies a lack of motivation or energy to take action, which goes against the nature of water. Water is known for its ability to change and adapt to different environments, and laziness can hinder this fluidity and prevent growth or progress.

    Which of the following elements is a noble gas?

    • A.

      Iron (Fe)

    • B.

      Bromine (Br)

    • C.

      Neon (Ne)

    • D.

      Nitrogen (N)

    Correct Answer
    C. Neon (Ne)
    Explanation
    Neon (Ne) is a noble gas because it belongs to the group 18 of the periodic table. Noble gases are known for their stable and unreactive nature due to having a full outer electron shell. Neon specifically has a full outer shell with 8 electrons, making it highly stable and unreactive. In contrast, Iron (Fe), Bromine (Br), and Nitrogen (N) are not noble gases as they do not have full outer electron shells and are more likely to form chemical bonds with other elements.

Courage, on the other hand, is often associated with elements like fire or water, as it requires strength, determination, and the ability to face fear or danger. Air is typically associated with qualities like freedom, communication, and intellect, rather than courage.
