    Hey,

    So my question was...

    State the electron arrangement of the following species:

    the potassium ion

    the sulfide ion

    For both of them I got 2, 8, 8. Does this seem right? They both seem to have the same electron configurations which seems a little odd or maybe it's to test us. Who knows.

    Anyway, if anyone could confirm this I'd be very grateful, cheers!

    Yep, I do believe they are both 2, 8, 8. As K = 2,8,8,1 so K+ = 2,8,8
    and
    S = 2,8,6 so S-2 = 2,8,8

    That's what I thought, so thank you for confirming it!
