Dear patidarshm@gmail.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

In case of multiple questions within a query, please post each question individually and let us know where you are getting stuck so that we would be able to explain things better.

However, answer to your first query is,

The noble gas core is an inner shell configuration which corresponds to one of the noble gases. For example, magnesium (Atomic number = Z = 12) has electronic configuration of 1s22s22p63s2 or [Ne] 3s2.

The pseudo noble gas core is an inner shell configuration corresponding to one of the noble gases together with (n-1)d10 electrons. This is because these electrons usually are not involved in chemical reactions. For example, Gallium (Z=31) has an electronic configuration of [Ar] 3d10 4s2 4p1.
