Dear student,
You can find your solution here.

The tendency to show+2oxidation state increases as we move down the group. This is due to the inert pair effect which causes theinability ofns2electrons of the valence shell to participate in bonding.
Thus, the stability of elements in the +2oxidation state increases as we move down the group in the orderC<Si<Ge<Sn<Pb.
