These questions are only here to provide help when reviewing for the exam. I did not
include any questions about the production or uses of elements because that is just pure
memorization. I suggest that you go through the different groups on the periodic table
and know the characteristics about the groups and any of their properties, including how
the elements are used. That will be on the exam. Good Luck with your studying.
