    Which among the following metallic mineral is used both for nuclear reactors as well as stainless steel?

    A)  Niobium          

    B)  Vanadium

    C)  Thorium          

    D)  Radium

    Correct Answer: A

Niobium has physical and chemical properties similar to those of the element tantalum, and the two are therefore difficult to distinguish.
