We have to compare the energy differences between the higher energy levels of an atom with the energy differences between the lower energy levels of the atom.

Electrons occupy different energy levels or orbitals in the atoms. These energy levels are quantized, meaning they can only have specific discrete values. The energy levels closer to the nucleus have lower energy values, while those farther away have higher energy values.
