Well 3+ indicates that the ion is in Group 3, so it must be a transition metals. All transition metal ions have incomplete d sub shells so it must be B

but can't atoms in other groups form a +3 charge as well? is it always transition metals?

But only transition metals are able to have a 3+ charge due to their variable oxidation states so it's still B. A non-transition metal won't have a 3+ charge

Thanks however I found that arsenic can have a +3 charge and it is not even a transition metal -could you please lemme know your thoughts about this?

It's kind of confusing to explain but there are some atoms that are able to act sort of like transition metals, arsenic is a metalloid so it has some metallic properties. However you would know that this case isn't describing Arsenic because the answer D is Arsenic in it's atomic form (with a neutral charge)
