(1) metal to metalloid to nonmetal

(2) metal to nonmetal to metalloid

(3) nonmetal to metalloid to metal

(4) nonmetal to metal to metalloid


Solution: Metals are located to the left of the staircase on the Periodic Table. Metalloids are located on the staircase. Nonmetals are located to the right of the staircase. As the elements are listed from atomic number 11 (Na) to 17(Cl), they go from metal to metalloid to nonmetal (1).
