Remeber two rules while filling electrons in the atoms:
  1. Orbitals are filled in the order of increasing n+l;
  2. Where two orbitals have the same value of n+l, they are filled in order of increasing n.
Where n = primary quantum number and l= azimuthal quantum number.
So, electron will enter in 6s and then in 5d.
