We’re being asked to construct the orbital diagram for Ni. For that, we first need to determine the electron configuration of Ni.
Recall that for a neutral element, Atomic number = # of protons = # of electrons.
The atomic number of Ni is 28 and since it’s a neutral element, this means Ni has 28 electrons.
Construct the orbital diagram for Ni.
