# What elements would have similar properties to Sulfur?

Just to retire this question...$\text{sulfur}$ is a $\text{Group 16 element}$....$\text{oxygen, sulfur, selenium, tellurium, polonium..}$...it have SIX valence electrons, and the element can be reduced to form $\text{sulfide ion}$ ${S}^{2 -}$....
Sulfur is a common oxidant, and its chemistry mirrors that of oxygen...... Nevertheless, sulfur CAN be oxidized to form $S {O}_{2}$ and $S {O}_{3}$, the anhydrides of $\text{sulfurous}$ and $\text{sulfuric acids...}$
