C. It is a gas.

D. It has low reactivity.


Answer: B. It is ductile.

Cesium is a very ductile metal with the second-lowest boiling point after mercury. It is liquid at room temperature and has chemical properties similar to that of potassium. Before failure, Cesium can sustain and withstand plastic deformation under tensile stress. This makes it metal with high ductility.
