Question

The screening effect of delectrons is: 
  1. Equal to p electrons
  2. Much more than p electrons
  3. Same as f electrons
  4. Less than p electrons


Solution

The correct option is D Less than p electrons
More diffused is the shape of the orbitals poorer is the screening effect.

s- spherical shape
p- dumbbell
d- double dumbell
f- complex

Since s orbital is spherical in shape thus it is most penetrating. 
Hence,the order of screening effect is s>p>d>f
