    Answer: The electronic configuration is given below.

    Explanation:

    Electronic configuration tells us about the number of electrons that are present in an atom. It also determines the atomic number of an element.

    Phosphorus is the 15th element of the periodic table having 15 electrons.

    The electronic configuration for the given element = [tex]1s^22s^22p^63s^23p^3[/tex]

    This element require 3 electrons and thus carry a charge of -3 units.

    So, the electronic configuration for the phosphide ion which is formed by gaining 3 electrons = [tex]1s^22s^22p^63s^23p^6[/tex]

    Thus, the electronic configuration is given above.

    Answer: ( [Ne]3s23p6 )
    When the phosphide ion forms, the phosphorus atom gains three electrons. Therefore, the electron configuration becomes [Ne]3s23p6 because the phosphorus atom gains three electrons that are added to the 3p subshell.
