The discontinuity in the curve would be present at Al+ , Al3+ , Al6+ (All these are stabilised states due to completely or half filled atomic subshells). Al3+ is the greatly stabilised due to noble gas configuration. A+ sue to half filled s subshell and Al6+ due to half filled p subshell.


Other than this thse discontinuities, the ionization enthalpies would increase with oxn state as effective nuclear chrge would increase.

What is the meaning of line that this compound is aromatically stabilized?
 
 
The stability of aromatic compounds arises because all bonding orbitals are filled and low in energy. If I have helped you please approve my answer!!
