What properties of transition metals allow them to have many oxidation states?

Transition metals have many oxidation states because they have the d shell where they can lose electrons from.

this is what if found online lol
"Transition metals can have multiple oxidation states because of their electrons. The transition metals have several electrons with similar energies, so one or all of them can be removed, depending the circumstances. This results in different oxidation states."

to go further from the previous reply, the transitions metals belong in the d-block, meaning they are able to have more oxidation states than elements that do not. At this point, the electron shells do not have a lot of difference in energy like there was between the s and 2p orbitals.

Transition metals are capable of adopting ions with different charges because in mind they are in the d-block so they one or more unpaired electrons in one of their ions.

Transition metals are in the d block so they have electrons they can adopt electrons with more than one charge
