Did you pay enough attention in your classes? Why don’t you find out with this quick noble gases quiz?
Oh, don’t worry, we are not going to make this quiz terribly difficult for you. The questions are simple and cover the basic things that are taught in school.
This quiz contains questions like who discovered most of the noble gases, are noble gases stable, which one is the most abundant noble gas and so on. Are the really difficult?
We don’t think so! If you know the basics, you should be able to with the quiz.
Just to let you know, there is no time limit but don’t take any undue advantage of that. Don’t take help from Internet or your books or anyone else. Be honest!
Does a noble gas lose or gain an electron to attain stability?
Noble gases neither lose nor gain an electron because of their octet configuration which makes them stable.
How many valence electrons does a noble gas usually have?
Noble gases generally have 8 valence electrons. The only exception to this is Helium which has only 2 valence electrons.
Which of the noble gas does not have an octet configuration?
Helium has only 2 electrons in its outermost shell. It doesn’t have 8 valence electrons (octet configuration).
Which of the following is radioactive among the noble gases?
Radon is the only radioactive noble gas.
Which of the following is not a member of noble gas family?
Iridium is not a noble gas. The other three elements - Radon, Neon, and Helium are noble gases.
Another name of noble gases is?
Noble gases are also known as inert gases because they don’t easily react with other elements.
Which of the following noble gases is the most abundant?
Helium is the most abundant of all the noble gases.
Which noble gas is used by asthma patients?
