Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Bromine and Arsenic (same period  IVth)  Bromine is a nonmetal with one valency, whereas Arsenic shows semiconductor like properties and its valency is 5. The nuclear attraction is higher on the valence shell for Br, as well as it needs just one electron to satisfy its octet  so Br is definitely more reactive here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Bromine and Astatine (At) [same group]  again I would say Br is more reactive  again because Br is more electronegative (due to relative proximity of the valence shell from the nucleus).
