What is the best conductor of electricity??

Conductive Metals

An electrical conductor is a substance that has a low resistivity and easily conducts electric current.. The presence of a large number of freely moving charged particles in a conductor is called a carrier.. Under the action of an external electric field, carriers move directionally, creating an apparent current. So, what is the best conductor of electricity?
