Electrons are one of the most important components in atoms. Compare and contrast how the electrons are organized in K (potassium), Al (aluminum), C (carbon), Cl (chlorine) and Ne (neon). Then explain how that electron structure leads these atoms to form or not form bonds with other atoms
Note you are asked to compare and contrast. That means noting both similar and different features. Electron notations will play an important part in your answer. You have to answer this question thoroughly and show me that you really understand how the electrons are organized in these atoms and how that effects how they bond.

    I don't see any work or thought on your part. I suggest you start with the electron structure of the atoms in question. The 1s2 2s2 2p6 etc notation would be the best to use.
