strictly, zinc, cadmium and mercury aren’t considered transition metals. IUPAC definition of a transition metal states that it must be ‘an element whose atom has an incomplete d sub-shell, or gives rise to cations with an incomplete d sub-shell‘.

However, they can also exist in a +1 oxidation state.
