Expert Answer:

a)      In a periodic table, periods are horizontal rows (across) the periodic table, while groups are vertical columns (down) the table.

b)      Atomic number increases in both ways as you move down a group or across a period.

c)      Across group, an electron shell gets added to atom while across the period electron gets added to the same shell.
