Based on periodic trends, which one of the following elements do you expect to be most easily reduced? Ca,Sr,Cl,or P and why?
I think ,it is Cl
The chlorine is most electronegative amongst the four elements given here. So it has got the greatest capacity to accept electron i.e to get reduced. Ca and Sr are iGr 2 elements so both are metal and electro positive. P and Cl are in the 2nd period . Cl lies right Of P in Gr7 & so has greater electronegativity than P
