    Predicting oxidation number.....

    Consider a compound with the general formula XOH. X would have an oxidation number of +1 and most likely be an alkali metal and found in group IA. It could be sodium, potassium, etc. There are no hydroxides of the metals in group IB. X could be thallium (TlOH), which is found in group IIIA.

    In a compound with the general formula XS, X will have an oxidation number of +2. X could be an alkaline earth metal found in group IIA. X could also be a metal found in group IIB (zinc, cadmium or mercury). X could also be tin or lead, metals found in group IVA (SnS or PbS).
