The reactivity series shows metals in order of reactivity. The reactivity of a metal is related to its tendency to form positive ions. Iron and aluminium are extracted from their ores in various ways.
Which statement about the reactivity series is correct?
Metals at the bottom of the reactivity series lose electrons more easily than metals at the top of the series
Metals at the top of the reactivity series react less vigorously than metals at the bottom of the series
Metals at the top of the reactivity series lose electrons more easily than metals at the bottom of the series
