Problem

Draw the partial (valence-level) orbital diagram, and write the symbol, group number, and period number of the element:
(a) [Ne] 3s23p5 

Solution

Noble gas electron configuration of the element: [Ne] 3s23p5 

The valence shell is the highest numbered orbitals which are 3s and 3p:

s → 1 orbital
p → 3 orbitals
*each orbital can contain up to 2 electrons
