Atomic number :  10
   1s2  2s2  2p6 :    Neon      Group 18 as number of electrons in the outermost shell = 8 the noble gas config.
   period 2          valency:  0   noble gas..
Z = 20
   1s2  2s2  2p6  3s2 3p6   4s2  ::  it is a metal..  Calcium.
     It has  2 valence electrons in the outermost shell.  valency -2..
     period 4..   group = 2 = number of electrons in outer most shell.
   period = 4 as  the outermost shell  is 4.
Z = 7
     1s2  2s2   2p3            it is Nitrogen..  it has valency +5 or -3..    group : 18-3 = 15
     it has 5 valence electrons..    it is a non metal.. it is a gas..
         period 2. as outer most shell is 2.

Z = 14
     1s2  2s2  2p6 3s2  3p2        it is  Silicon...
           valency  4  ... 4 electrons in the outer most shell.
         it is in group  18 - 4 = 14.
         period = 3  as the outermost shell is 3.
