Answer:

#"Malleable, ductile, and chemically reducing..........."#

Explanation:

#"Malleability"# refers to the ability of metals to be hammered out into a sheet.

#"Ductility"# refers to the ability of metals to be drawn out into a wire.

Metals tend to be oxidized upon reaction.

And all these properties, and in addition #"electrical"# and #"thermal conductivity"#, can be attributed to #"metallic bonding"#. See this old answer.
