Which element of each of the following pairs has the higher electron affinity: a) tellurium or iodine; b) beryllium or magnesium; c) oxygen or sulfur; d) gallium or indium?

So why is the answer for c) sulfur and for b) and d) the answer is that they are equal. All these scenarios show one element on top of the other yet why does c) result in one having a higher electron affinity?

I think the solutions manual may be wrong. That doesn't sound right to me at all.

Dr. Lavelle has a list of solution manual errors. This one is not on there, but here's the link for reference:
