(A)

(B)

(C)

(D)

Answer:

The oxidizing character of elements increases from left to right across a period. Thus, we get the decreasing order of oxidizing property as

Again, the oxidizing character of elements decreases down a group. Thus, we get .

However, the oxidizing character of is more than that of i.e, .

Hence, the correct order of chemical reactivity of in terms of their oxidizing property is
