Best Answer

There are more metals than non-metals. This occurs because of the transition metals group. When looking at a group on the Periodic Table the transition metals makes up a large portion because they are the atoms that take use of the the d orbital for electrons. The d orbital has room for 10 electrons and therefore there is a large number of transition metals per group.
