Yes.

#### Explanation:

We need to compare density of these elements to decide which one is heavier.

Density of mercury near room temperature : $13.534 {\text{ gcm}}^{-} 3$

Density of tin near room temperature
white, β: 7.265" gcm"^-3
gray, α: 5.769" gcm"^-3#
when liquid, at melting point : $6.99 {\text{ gcm}}^{-} 3$

On comparison we conclude that mercury is heavier element than tin.
