    Which of the following free halogens CANNOT be prepared by the electrolysis of water solution of its salt?

    A) F2
    B) Cl2
    C) Br2
    D) I2
    E) At2

    All of these compounds exist in nature except for At2. All of the other elements are diatomic elements and will form the compounds. Astatine, however, is not diatomic and is radioactive and will decay as soon as it is formed.

    Which one of the following has the smallest atomic radius?

    A) Li
    B) Cs
    C) F
    D) Na
    E) Cl

    Atomic radius increases as you go down the periodic table. Based on this, Li and F will have the smallest radii. Fluorine has more protons (9) pulling in on the electrons than lithium does (3) though, so it will have ...
