Weegy: The successive ionization energies show a significant jump between the second and third IE’s, indicating that the second electron removed occupies a different orbital than the third electron removed. [ There is no significant jump between the third, fourth or fifth IE’s, indicating that the third, fourth, and fifth electrons to be removed occupy the same orbital. ]
