9. For s and p valence orbitals, overlap decreases on A group of periodic table while B is true for the transition metals. That is why the heat of atomization of the main group metals C with increasing atomic numbers while B trend is observed for transition metals. Here A, B and C respectively are: (a) Ascending, opposite, increases (C) Descending, the same, geos up (b) descending, opposite, falls (d) ascending, the same, falls ANSWED KAV

    B is the correct answer. The effective overlap of s and p orbitals decreases while descending the periodic table.

    Due to increase in the sizes and principal quantum number, the d orbitals start coming in the picture. That's why it decreases while descending down the group. Hope it helps. 😊
