Expert Answer:

Most metallic element is found at bottom of the group because on moving down the group,

tendency to lose electrons increases leading to increase in metallic character.

Down the group the atomic size increases. The valence electrons have less attraction to the nucleus 

and elements can lose electrons more readily and hence metallic character increases.
