Q. In context with the transition elements, which of the following statements is incorrect? (1) In the highest oxidation states of the first five transition elements (Sc to Mn), all the 4s and 3d electrons are used for bonding. (2) Once the d5 configuration is exceeded, the tendency to involve all the 3d electrons in bonding decreases. (3) In addition to the normal oxidation states, the zero oxidation state is also shown by these elements in complexes. (4) In the highest oxidation states, the transition metal show basic character and form cationic complexes. [AIEEE-2009]

If you are talking about the solubility of these compounds in water then at room temperature Na2Cr2O7 is much more soluble in water than K2Cr2O7. As the temperature increases, K2Cr2O7 becomes highly soluble in water. As far solubility in alcohol is K2Cr2O7 is insoluble whereas they are Na2Cr2O7 is soluble in methanol
