I think the question in this quiz is referring to total mass but is hydrogen more abundant in the human body in terms of number of atoms? I assume that the large majority of the oxygen atoms are due to the high water content and each water molecule will have twice that number of hydrogen atoms...

Mass is a better measure imo, but maybe it could be specified, yes.

Most common to me would be a count, not by mass unless its specified in the question. "Because of water content, the human body contains more oxygen by mass than any other element, but more hydrogen by atom-fraction than any element." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composition_of_the_human_body

Yeah, I was going to post something similar for a number of questions--lots of valuable metals and poisonous metalloids, etc.--but I got all of the suspect questions right on the first guess, and their overall guess rates are high, so I suppose the questions are fine.

There are lots of poisonous metalloid elements, too, aren't there? Maybe most of the ones I was thinking of aren't technically metalloid... or maybe they're not "extremely" poisonous.
