Transition metals have properties, such as ability to form colored ions and ability to form variable oxidation states. These properties which differentiate them from group 1 and 2 metals arose because their d-orbitals are partially filled.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is incorrect. not partially filled s-orbitals.
  2. Option B is incorrect. not partially filled p-orbitals.
  3. C is correct. yes, partially filled d-orbitals.
  4. D is not the correct answer. Sulphuric acid, not in use.

QUICK TIPS…

You may please note these/this:
