We’re being asked to choose the correct orbital diagram for vanadium. For that, we first need to determine the electron configuration of Vanadium.
Recall that for a neutral element, Atomic number = # of protons = # of electrons.
The atomic number of Vanadium is 23 and since it’s a neutral element, this means V has 23 electrons.
Choose the correct orbital diagram for vanadium.
