M shell has 10 electrons.
K shell can accomodate a maximum of 2 e- whereas L shell can accomodate 8 e-
So the total electrons in M shell= 2+8= 10 electrons
which element is this
is it calcium?
Yes. It is calcium. The total no. of electrons is 20.

K shell => n = 1   =>  number of electrons (max) = 2 n² = 2
L shell => n = 2  =>  number of electrons max  =  2 n² = 8
M shell .  n= 3.           max num of electrons =  18

But given,  electrons in  orbit n = 3 are 2 + 8 = 10
The total num of electrons in the atom =  2 + 8 + 10 = 20  = Z
The valency shell is  M shell, as it is not completely filled and the two lower orbits are completely filled.

Valency shell is  M shell => num of electrons = 10.

The chemical element with Z = 20, is Calcium.
