  1. La and Hg both belong to period 6. Therefore, n = 6.
  2. Elements of group 3 to group 12 belong to the d-block of the modern periodic table.
  3. The general outer electronic configuration of the d-block elements is ns0-2 (n – 1)d1–10
  4. Therefore, the outer electronic configuration of all ten elements from La to Hg is as given in the table below.
