In a atom maximum Energy difference is between first and second energy levels.If we increase the levels energy difference between them decrease.

The energy in nth orbit of Hydrogen atom is 13.6/n2.

In 1st orbit=> E=13.6 eV

In 2nd orbit, E=3.4 eV

In 3rd orbit, E=1.5 eV

Here E1-E2 = 10.2 eV     AND E2-E3 = 1.9 eV

THe difference in energy level further goes on decreasing.

So energy difference is maximum between 1st and 2nd level.
