The Brainliest Answer!
(a)isotopes are similar as they have same number of electrons  or electronic configuration.
(b)in an atom no. of electrons =no. of protons.as the  +ve and -ve charges are equal .atoms are electrically neutral.
(c)ions gain or loose electrons to attain octet.as they have stable octet configuration.ions are more stable than atoms.
(d)Na+ looses an electron to attain octet and thus have completely filled K and L shells.
