Answer :

Electronic configuration:


The atomic number of carbon = 6


The electronic configuration of 6C = 2,4


The atomic number of lithium = 3


The electronic configuration of 3Li = 2,1


The atomic number of fluorine = 9


The electronic configuration of 9F = 2,7


The atomic number of nitrogen = 7


The electronic configuration of 7N = 2,5


The atomic number of oxygen = 8


The electronic configuration of 8O = 2,6


Among the given elements, fluorine has highest non-metallic character (most electronegative element).


Explanation:


All the given elements have total two shells present in them which means all the elements belong to the same period (period 2).


The non-metallic character (electronegativity) increases as we move from lithium to fluorine in a period.


Hence, among the given elements, fluorine has the highest tendency to accept electrons.


Thus, fluorine has the highest non-metallic character.


Note: More easily an element accepts electrons, higher will be its non- metallic character (electronegativity)
