(a) oxygen

(b) aluminum

(c) silicon

(d) tin

(e) phosphorus

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution  63P

Here, we are going to categorizes the following elements.

Periodic table is classified into four Blocks.

(i) s- block elements: it has 2 columns in the periodic table. This is because s orbital has maximum capacity of holding 2 electrons.

(ii) p-block elements :  it has 6 columns in the periodic table. This is because each set of p orbital has maximum capacity of holding 2 electrons. Total six electrons can hold by p orbitals.

(iii) d-block elements:it has 10 columns in the periodic table. This is because each set of d orbital has maximum capacity of holding 2 electrons. Total10 electrons can hold by d orbitals.

(iv) f-block elements: it has 14 columns in the periodic table. This is because each set of f orbital has maximum capacity of holding 2 electrons. Total 14 electrons can hold by f orbitals.

The placement of an element in the periodic table is characterized by its electronic configuration which is due to the position of that element.

Thus,

(i) The total number of valence electron of an element is equal to the group number...
