A) atomic number B) total number of s electrons

C) total number p electrons
D) total number of protons
E)Paired electrons
F)unpaired electrons

    Count the electrons; that's the atomic numbr and you didn't need to write the electron configuration to do that. You can count from the problem.
    C. Count the p.
    D.total protons must = total electrons
    E. Can you find them?
