Well, reasonably elemental anions should have a radius GREATER than the atomic radius.........Do you agree? Why $\text{reasonably}$?

#### Explanation:

And elemental cations should have a SMALLER radius than the atomic radius. As chemists, as physical scientists we should examine the data......

Are the data here consistent with what I have argued? The units are quoted in $\text{picometres}$, ${10}^{-} 12 \cdot m$.
