Solution :-

Mendeleev organised the components in his periodic table, according to the order of their atomic weight. Mendeleev organized the components in groups and periods according to the increasing atomic weight. Mendeleev set the elements which are having comparative properties in similar groups. Nonetheless, he didn’t adhere to an arrangement that he gave for long. He discovered that if the elements were organized according to their increasing atomic weights, then a few elements did not match within this plan of characterization. In this manner, he overlooked the order of atomic weights now and again. For instance, the atomic mass of iodine is lower than the atomic mass of tellurium. Still, Mendeleev set tellurium (in Group 6) ahead of iodine (in Group 7) essentially in light of the fact that iodine’s properties are so comparable to fluorine, chlorine, and bromine.
