8.9   In what way is the electronic configuration of the transition elements different from that of the non transition  elements?

Transition elements have paritally filled $d$-orbitals. Thus general electronic configuration of transition elements is
$(n-1)d^{1-10}ns^{0-2}$

Non-transition elements either have fully filled d- orbital or do not have  d- orbitals. Therefore general electronic configuration is
$ns^{1-2}$ or $ns^{2}np^{1-6}$
