8.13 How is the variability in oxidation states of transition metals different from that of the non transition metals? Illustrate with examples.

In transition metals, the variation of oxidation states id from +1 to the highest oxidation number, by removing all its valence electrons. Also in transition metals, the oxidation number is differed by one unit like ($Fe^{3+}-Fe^{2+}$;$Cu^{+}-Cu^{2+}$). But in non-transition elements, the oxidation states are differed by two (+2 and +4 or +3 and +5 etc.)
