Arrange the elements N, P, O and S in the order of-

(i) increasing first ionisation enthalpy.

(ii) increasing non-metallic character.

(ii) P < S < N < O

The ionisation enthalpy increases on moving from left to right in a period, and similarly Non-metallic character increases while moving from left to right across the period.
