    Answer:

    In the transition series, atomic size across a period decreases at first but then remains relatively constant.

    The transition elements in a period show a steady increase in electronegativity.

    Explanation:

    In considering the transition series, we observe that atomic sizes of the elements decreases first and subsequently remain constant. The reason for the initial decrease in atomic size is the increase in nuclear charge across the period. After the first few elements in the period, the atomic size remains relatively constant due to shielding effect of the inner d electrons which opposes the increase in effective nuclear charge.

    It is also observed that electro negativity increases smoothly across the period for the transition series. Consequently, the transition series become less electro positive across the period.
