Why are some elements reactive.

Q4. Why are some elements reactive?

Ans. Elements are reactive if they readily gain or lose electrons. Elements on the left of the periodic table, called metals, lose electrons very easily- the further left they are, the more reactive they are. So Group 1 metals (called the alkali metals) including sodium, potassium and francium are very reactive.
