Answer:

Yes.

Explanation:

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

Density of mercury near room temperature : #13.534" 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" gcm"^-3#

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