Answer:

The reactivity of the elements in group II increases down the group

Explanation:

because group II is metals, and metals normally try to lose electrons to become metal cations, and as you go down a group the nucleus has a less strong hold on the electrons, therefore it's more likely to lose an electron and bond with another atom.
