Expert Answer:

At present more than 114 elements are known. Efforts to synthesis new elements are continuing. With such a large number of elements it is very difficult to study individually the chemistry of all these elements and their innumerable compounds individually.  To ease out this problem, scientists searched for a systematic way to organize their knowledge by classifying the elements.
