#### Answer:

Primarily to conserve space..

#### Explanation:

If you're asking why the $f$-block elements have their own location separate from the main table...

The $f$-block elements are places apart from the main table primarily to conserve space. With these elements included, the table would have 32 columns! (You can find tables including them anywhere online.)
