As we learnt in

Electronic configuration of nitrogen family -

-

Electronic Configuration:

$7^{N}: \left [ He \right ] 2s^{2}2p^{3}$

$15P: \left [ Ne \right ] 3s^{2}3p^{3}$

$33As: \left [Ar \right ] 3d^{10}4s^{2}4p^{3}$

$51Sb: \left [Kr \right ] 4d^{10}5s^{2}5p^{3}$

$83Bi: \left [Xe \right ] 4f^{14}5d^{16}6s^{2}6p^{3}$
