    What is the context of your question? Is it for schoolwork or self-study? Why did you post it in the Physics forum instead of the Chemistry forum? Looks more like Chem to me.

    And what do you think the correct order should be and why? And reactive with what?

    (EDIT -- thread has been moved to the appropriate forum)

    Question as asked doesn't make much sense. Some of these elements can be easily compared directly, but chemistry of some is way too different for a meaningful, direct comparison.

    Sulfur doesn't speed up chemical reactions. Perhaps some of them, but your question is suggesting it is a general property of sulfur. It is not.

    what you mean....perhaps some of them..can speed the chimcal reaction. ...can you explain more...

    Sorry, but no. This is not something for a short post, this is something that requires a general chemistry book, plus large parts of an intro Physical Chemistry course.

    This Wikipedia page (Reactivity Series) may give you some help on clarifying your question. You could also take a look here - Reactivity (chemistry) - Wiki
