Q11. What are the lanthanides?

Ans. The lanthanides are a group of 15 elements in the middle of the periodic table that take their name from lanthanum. They are all shiny silvery metals and often occur naturally together. They all have two electrons in their outer electron shells. This makes them chemically similar- they are all very reactive.
