Density increases. Atomic radius decreases from left to right across a period because: 1) Electrons are being "added" into the same shell, (you know that the shell number doesn't increase across a period) 2) The proton number and number of electrons increases across a period, this causes greater attractive force between positive and negative charges, resulting in decrease in atomic radius as mass increases, therefore greater density.

mass increases but radius decreases since d = m/V density increases i get it thank you very much !

but the right side we have gases but here i think they're asking only for atom i hope, not the molecule level

oh it shows left and right groups have least density

some trend still exists, as we move from left to right, s>p>d, upto the last group in d block, the density is increasing

looks nonmetals have less density again breaking the general increasing density trend
