Best answer

 1H, 7N, 20Ca, 16S, 4 Be, 18Ar 

Electronic configuration of atoms ::

 1H=1

 7N=2,5

 20Ca=2,8,8,2

 16S=2,8,6

 4 Be=2,2

 18Ar=2,8,8 

Among the given elements, Ca and Be belong to second group. Because both has two electrons in the outermost shell. Thus, these two elements belong to second group.
