Yes, I am asking for help with homework. I have no excuses; this is my last problem before I am finished and it has me stumped. So, in response to the people who will say: "Do your own work" all I can say is please. Can anyone solve this?

In the 2 x 2 box shown here(*just assume there is a chart), each answer must be correct four ways: horizontally, vertically,
diagonally, and by itself. Instead of words, use symbols of the elements. When the puzzle is
complete, the four spaces will contain the overlapping symbols of ten elements. There is only one
correct solution.

Horizontal
1-2: Two-letter symbol for a metal used in ancient times.
3-4: Two-letter symbol for a metal that burns in air and is found in group 5A.
Vertical
1-3: Two-letter symbol for a metalloid.
2-4: Two-letter symbol for a metal used in U.S. coins.
Single squares: all one-letter symbols
1. A colorful nonmetal.
2. Colorless gaseous nonmetal.
3. An element that makes fireworks green.
4. An element that has medicinal uses.
Diagonal
1-4: Two-letter symbol for an element used in electronics.
2-3: Two-letter symbol for a metal used with Zr to make wires for superconducting magnets.

Actually there are four, if I understand you correctly. I just had some what of an epiphany and solved it myself. The answer is as follows:
1. Sulfur 2. Nitrogen
3. Boron 4. Iodine

ancient times = iron?
US coins = copper, zinc or nickel
green fireworks = barium, copper salts also burn green
electronics = probably silicon, also germanium, and the ones in the 2 columns next to them
Zr magnets = wikipedia says zinc
colourful nonmetal = iodine is purple?
colourless nonmetal gas = well, they're all mostly colourless? so take your pick out....
