bromide is extremely reactive and mostly and quickly combines with anything but the most common is hydrogen While it is true that bromine is reactive and never found in its free state, the question here is "what element is most likely to react with bromine". Although the conditions of the reaction have an influence and mean there can be more than one answer to this question, the most common form of bromine found in ocean water or the earth's crust is sodium bromide, and, more theoretically, sodium is more reactive than hydrogen. Sodium has reacted with the most bromine because sodium itself is quite abundant, and, like bromine, is extremely reactive. The combination of bromine and hydrogen, hydrogen bromide, is almost always manufactured synthetically. Any free HBr in the environment would quickly react with soil or water constituents and most likely would form sodium bromide.

Element A is in the same group as element B and the same period as element C Which two of the three elements are likely to have similar properties?

Element A and element B are the most likely to have similar properties because they belong in the same family, because if you know an element's family you can tell the number of valance electrons and the elements they react with. In periods, the properties are not alike, they slowly change in a pattern.
