Answer

a. Thermal conductivity - higher for metals b. Electrical resistivity - lower for metals c. Transparency - lower for metals d. Ductility - higher for metals

Work Step by Step

Comparing metals and non-metals, we see that - a. Thermal conductivity - higher for metals b. Electrical resistivity - lower for metals - metals have less resistance to flow of current than non metals. c. Transparency - lower for metals - metals are usually opaque d. Ductility - higher for metals - metals can easily be drawn into wires
