The correct answer to this question is Group 18. This group is the Noble Gases. They have many characteristics which make them stand apart from other elements. These include the fact that they have no color, no smell, no taste, and are non-flammable.

The Noble Gases include Radon, Helium, Neon, Argon, Xenon, and Krypton. In the periodic table, they are in order according to their boiling point. Helium has the least boiling point and Radon has the most. These gases are used for various purposes. Helium is used for balloons and Radon is used in radiation for cancer patients, but only in small doses.

You need to check Group 18 of the periodic table if you want to know the group in the periodic table. Are you familiar with what elements are available when you check Group 18? This is a group that is composed of Noble Gases.

There are certain characteristics of this group that will set them apart from the other groups. It is obvious from the name that this will only be composed of gases. Aside from that, they are usually monotonic. They are chemically inert, especially when compared to the other groups. There may be some exceptions to their usual properties but this does not happen often.
