The energies, E, for the first few states of an unknown element are shown here in arbitrary units.
n 1 E 11
n 2 E 5
n 3 E 2
n 4 E 1
n ... E ...
n infinite E 0
A gaseous sample of this element is bombarded by photons of various energies (in these same units). Match each photon to the result of its absorption (or lack thereof) by an n=1 electron.
Photon/Energy
A/11
B/9
C/8
D/6
Choices:
n=1 to n=2
n=1 to n=3
n=1 to n=4
electron ejected
not absorbed

In order to get 11, I need to go from 11 to zero. Zero is infinity which means the electron was ejected (ionized).
To get 9 I need 2 to 11 and that is n = 1 to n = 3. Can you take it from here? 
I need help with the rest.
What is C/8? not absorbed?
Is D/8 n=1 to n=2?
