Image #3

At the Matchmakers’

I chanced upon a match factory,
It was a blustery summers day;
A small signboard led the way.

The big door was old and worn,
Undoubtedly made of wood;
And so firmly there it stood.

Poked my head in I did,
And shocked by what I saw;
The Master gestured ‘fifty quid’,
But I just stood there in awe.

Those I saw bedazzled me,
Of beauty unannounced;
Radiant as I could see,
But not all of it counts.

Of the twenty-something matches that were there,
Nestled in the cornerside, she sat down alone,
Wrapped in a loud ruby red with needles in her hair,
Resting on mahogany, deep in thoughts unknown,
The matchstick in the corner, to whom I could not compare.

Her thin lips smiled so sweet,
As graceful as her air,
And as her pretty, supple feet;
None of the matches who were there,
Really could compete.

I gestured back at Master,
I said that she’s the one,
“I’m certain, more than ever,”
And just when it was done,
He then called out to get ’er.

Sweating out of my two palms,
Standing there alone,
I thought I would have had no qualms,
With the mistress of my own.

But as she came here in the light,
I certainly could see,
That she was truly hideous, as ugly as can be.

However, with light, if you mix all the colours of light together, you get white. This is called subtractive mixing. State any 2 of the 3 primary colours when it comes to light.

Thus, they intended to see the Wizard to obtain such qualities. Of these different goals, what did the tin man want?

2. The elements in Group 18 of the periodic table are chemically inert and unreactive as they have fully occupied valence electron shells. These elements all have low melting and boiling points, and thus exist as gases at room temperature. These noble gases range in colour, and are used in a wide variety of applications, such as the neon in neon signages. Halogens, however, require one more electron to attain a stable electron arrangement. Thus, in which group of the Periodic Table of Elements are the halogens located?
