    I'm not going to do your homework for you, and I don't even understand what you want with 1. It appears to be coordination chemistry, but what do you want?

    But I will tell you that all of the other questions can be answered with an understanding of the fairly simple concept of Zeff (effective nuclear charge) along with the Aufbau Principle and the Pauli Exclusion Principle. All of these concepts are both very simple and enlightening and I suggest you start there. If you want to talk about those concepts in more detail I'd be happy to.
