Answer:

Do you mean #"Group VI"# or #"Group 6"#?

Explanation:

#"Group 6"# are the #"chromium metals, chromium, molybdenum,"# #"tungsten."#

I presume you mean #"Group VI elements"#, #"the chalcogens"#, #"oxygen, sulfur, selenium, tellurium........."#

Both oxygen and sulfur have a tendency to oxidize other materials, themselves being reduced to #O^(2-)# and #S^(2-)#.
