For each of the questions in this section, one or more of the three numbered statements 1 to 3 may be correct. Decide whether each of the statements is or is not correct (you may find it helpful to put a tick against the statements that you consider to be correct). The responses A to D should be selected on the basis of
No other combination of statements is used as a correct response. 31 The Group IV elements carbon, silicon and germanium all exist in a diamond structure. The bond

producing ‘environmentally friendly’ gases.
Despite its use as a rocket fuel, hydrazine does not spontaneously burn in oxygen.
Why does hydrazine not burn spontaneously?
• does not conduct electricity when in a liquid state,
• when added to water produces a solution that readily conducts electricity.
35 Hydroxyapatite, a basic calcium phosphate, Ca(OH)2.3Ca3(PO4)2, is the mineral found in bone.
In older people, calcium ions can be lost from the hydroxyapatite, weakening the bone structure. In such cases, strontium salts are administered to strengthen the bone. The strontium ions replace the lost calcium ions in the hydroxyapatite.
1 Strontium ions are nearly the same size as calcium ions and so may easily replace them in
2 Strontium hydroxide is less soluble than calcium hydroxide and so will precipitate better in
3 There is ionic, covalent and metallic bonding in hydroxyapatite which gives it strength.
