Given electron configuration is Bismuth (Bi) and it belong to period 6 and group 5A.

so correct answer is C- period 6, group 5A.


Bismuth -:  the most metallic and the least abundant of the elements in the nitrogen group (Group 15 [Va] of the periodic table). Bismuth is hard, brittle, lustrous, and coarsely crystalline. It can be distinguished from all other metals by its colour—gray-white with a reddish tinge.
