										Sol. (a) and (b) are infact the same statements and both are correct. N has slightly greater ionization energy than oxygen which is against periodic trend. This exception is due to completely half-filled (2p3) orbital in nitrogen that makes ionization slightly difficult than oxygen .
(c) Also correct : A1though N has greater first ionization potential than oxygen, two values of ionization potentials are comparable since they are adjacent in a  period, ie, electrons are removed from same orbit during ionization.
(d) Incorrect – opposite to (c).
