X on the right, Z on the left


Metals are good conductors of electricity and heat. the text doesen't tell anymore and Z may be one of abaut 90 known metals, in the left area of the periodic table. X, instead, is a non metal, solid and breakable. It is situated in right area of the periodic table. perhaps it is sulfur
