"Representative element" is not a clear definition.

All of them. "Representative elements" means "representative of the group". A group which doesn't have any representative elements would be a largely meaningless group.

Group-1, 2,13-18 include representative elements. Group-1 and 2 contain metals. Group 13-17 contain non metals. Group18 comprises of noble gases.
