There are two elements in the 1st period and eight elements in the 2nd period. The third period starts with the element with Z = 11. Now, there are eight elements in the third period. Thus, the 3rd period ends with the element with Z = 18 i.e., the element in the 18th group of the third period has Z = 18. Hence, the element in the 17th group of the third period has atomic number Z = 17.
