Question:

Which metal in the first series of transition metals exhibits +1 oxidation state most frequently and why?

Solution:

In the first transition series, Cu exhibits +1 oxidation state very frequently. It is because Cu ( +1) has an electronic configuration of [Ar] 3d10. The completely filled d-orbital makes it highly stable.
