S Sumit

(a) It is due to availability of large number of valence electrons and high effective nuclear charge, hence, they form very strong metallic bonds leading to high enthalpies of atomization.

(b) It is due to its complex structure.

(c) It gains one electron to become Ce^{+3}, which is more stable , so it behaves as strong oxidising agent.
