Pattern-Anomalous behaviour of first member of p-Block Elements
Description: The anomalous behaviour of the first elements in p-block is generally due to their small size, large(charge/radius) ratio, high electronegativity, high ionisation enthalpy, and absence of d-orbital in the valence shell.
How to approach
Questions can be related to the factors that contribute to the unique behaviour in the first member of the p-Block elements and also the anomalies in their properties. To attempt such questions, it's good to brush up on the typical properties that Nitrogen, oxygen and fluorine display.
