How can you identify the pure form of an element?

It refers to the natural form of the element, so like all the diatomic gases being bonded to themselves (like oxygen or nitrogen), or the metallic elements being by themselves.

Generally all diatomic elements being themselves in their natural state like gaseous hydrogen or graphite for carbon.

In addition to what everyone else said, it also includes certain elements that exist in their normal state in multiples (like P5)

I think you just have to know if it's pure or not

Elements that are in its pure form are the most stable. So diatomic elements and other specific compounds (like graphite) are pure.

Why are they the most stable?

The natural form of the elements are most stable - so diatomic molecules are an example
