To write the complete electron configuration of an ion (charged species), we first need to write its electron configuration in ground state.
You can determine the ground-state electron configuration of Fluorine (F) by referring to the periodic table and locating the position of F in the periodic table.
Ground-state means that the element is in its lowest energy form (not in excited state). F has no charge which means that no electrons are removed or added in the atom.
What is the electron configuration of F−?
