    Hello,

    I have a practice question that tells me to order the following elements Mg, Al, Cl, and Br based on their electronegativities. The answer states that Mg has the lowest electronegativity and not Br which I chose as an answer. Br is down a period from Mg and to the right so shouldn’t it have a lower electroneg?

    Why is this the case?

    Thank you.
