  1. Dec 21, 2015 #1
    The answer is given as (a). I want to know the reason. It is a boson. Why can't it form a Bose-Einstein condensate?

    I am amazed. I had no idea spin polarized hydrogen could exist.

    So (d) would be the correct answer?

    Yes, because it is the only atom in the list with an even number if nucleons and an odd number of electrons an hence a fermion.
