The right side


In the periodic table, metals are on the left, metalloids are found towards the right, and nonmetals are on the right. Metals conduct electricity, are malleable, have luster etc. Metalloids share characteristics of both metals and nonmetals, and nonmetals are brittle, dont conduct electricity, etc.
