A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium capable of superconductivity, with a superconducting critical temperature of 1.2 kelvin and a critical magnetic field of about 100 gauss?

A: Yes, Aluminium is the most common material for the fabrication of superconducting qubits.

Q: Is aluminium abundant and most of its derivatives exhibit low toxicity?

A: Yes, and the compounds of aluminium enjoy wide and sometimes large-scale applications.

Q: Is aluminium created when hydrogen fuses with magnesium?

A: Yes, and either in large stars or in supernovae.

Q: Is aluminium bauxite?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium almost always alloyed?

A: Yes, and which markedly improves its mechanical properties, especially when tempered.

Q: Is aluminium exhibited at the Exposition Universelle of 1855?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium 7–11 MPa?

A: Yes, while aluminium alloys have yield strengths ranging from 200 MPa to 600 MPa.

Q: Is aluminium remarkable for the metal's low density and its ability to resist corrosion through the phenomenon of passivation?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium the most widely used non-ferrous metal?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium produced from the ore bauxite 3–2x))?

A: Yes, Bauxite occurs as a weathering product of low iron and silica bedrock in tropical climatic conditions.

Q: Is aluminium a good thermal and electrical conductor?

A: Yes, and having 59% the conductivity of copper, both thermal and electrical, while having only 30% of copper's density.

Q: Was aluminium not refined until the modern era?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium associated with altered function of the blood–brain barrier?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium known as secondary aluminium?

A: Yes, but maintains the same physical properties as primary aluminium.

Q: Is aluminium otopes are useful in dating marine sediments?

A: Yes, and manganese nodules, glacial ice, quartz in rock exposures, and meteorites.

Q: Is aluminium not as toxic as heavy metals?

A: Yes, but there is evidence of some toxicity if it is consumed in amounts greater than 40 mg/day per kg of body mass.

Q: Is aluminium a relatively soft?

A: Yes, and durable, lightweight, ductile, and malleable metal with appearance ranging from silvery to dull gray, depending on the surface roughness.

Q: Is aluminium produced in a wide range of formats and is employed in 80% of alloy injections?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium almost never found in the elemental state?

A: Yes, instead it is found in oxides or silicates.

Q: Was aluminium selected as the material to use for the 100 ounces capstone of the Washington Monument in 1884, a time when one ounce cost the daily wage of a common worker on the project?

A: Yes, The capstone, which was set in place on 6 December 1884 in an elaborate dedication ceremony, was the largest single piece of aluminium cast at the time.

Q: Is aluminium a common and widespread element?

A: Yes, and not all aluminium minerals are economically viable sources of the metal.

Q: Is aluminium primary among the factors that reduce plant growth on acid soils?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium of interest in view of the widespread occurrence of the element in the environment and in commerce?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium one of the few metals that retains silvery reflectance in finely powdered form?

A: Yes, and making it an important component of silver-colored paints.

Q: Is aluminium usually alloyed – it is used as pure metal only when corrosion resistance and/or workability is more important than strength or hardness?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium the third most abundant by mass fraction?

A: Yes, after hydrogen and nitrogen.

Q: Is aluminium theoretically 100% recyclable without any loss of its natural qualities?

A: Yes.

Q: Are aluminiums used as Lewis acids and cocatalysts?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium used to make some guitar resonators and some electric guitar speakers?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium still used in electrical services with specially designed wire termination hardware?

A: Yes.

Q: Is aluminium the most abundant metallic element and the third most abundant of all elements?

A: Yes, The Earth's crust has a greater abundance of aluminium than the rest of the planet, primarily in aluminium silicates.

Q: Is aluminium well tolerated by plants and animals?

A: Yes.
