Is Bi2O3 amphoteric because it is next to the diagnol on the periodic table of elements or basic because as you go down the periodic table of elements a compound becomes more basic.

Bi2O3 is amphoteric because its next to the diagonal. Also, another way you can look at it is that it can act as an acid or base.
