List the following element symbols in order of decreasing exothermic electron affinity: Al, Ca, As

_______>________>________

I wrote: Al>As>Ca (I got it wrong)

I know that if it is favorable to pick up an electron, energy will be released yet, I am still confused about what is the correct answer. Thank you!

Ca is the left most element in the table; I would pick that as the lowest. Al must be between. You can look up the electron affinities at www.webelements.com
