First write the electronic configuration:
19X = 1s2, 2s2 p6, 3s2 p6, 4s1
Now, remember the trend of electronic configuration og Groups and Periods.
Group 1 elemets have ns1 electronic configuration, or Group 2 has ns2 electronic configuration.
So, the given element belongs to Group 1.
About Period: In Period 1, the heighest level is 1, i.e. K.
In 2 Period it is 2, or L
In 3 period, it is 3 or M....
So, in this case we have highest energy level is 4, so the element will be in the fourth period.
