Expert Answer

The six elements belonging to group 1 of the periodic table, namely lithium (Li), sodium (Na), potassium (K), rubidium (Rb), cesium (Cs) and francium (Fr) are called alkali metals. They constitute alkali metals because they readily dissolve in water to form hydroxides, which are strongly alkaline in nature.
