because electronic confriguration of mn is 1s2 2s2 2p6  3s2 3p6  4s2  3d5 we cannot fill more than 2 electron in 1 orbital s subshell have 1 orbital , p subshell have 3 , d subshell have 5orbital and f have 7 and according to pauli exclusion principal 1 orbital can take max. 2 electrons . we can not fill 13 electron in 3rd shell (3s2 , 3p2 ).
