    The distribution of electrons in Carbon is K-2, L-4 or 1s22s22p2 and that of sodium is K-2, L-8, M-1 or 1s22s22p63s1

    Explanation:

    Carbon: Its atomic number is 6

    If we see the shell-wise electronic distribution then its 6 electrons are divided as the following

    Electrons in K – Shell = 2

    Electrons in L – Shell = 4

    And its proper electronic configuration comes out to be 1s22s22p2

    Sodium: Its atomic number is 11

    If we the shell-wise electronic distribution then its 11 electrons are divided as the following

    Electrons in K – Shell = 2

    Electrons in L – Shell = 8

    Electrons in M – Shell = 1

    And the electronic configuration comes out to be 1s22s22p63s1
