In general, the elements to top right of the periodic table have higher ionization energies. Conversely, the elements to bottom left have lower ionization energies. The elements given in the problem all follow this trend. Just rank them by which ones are higher or righter on the periodic table.

A cool trick to knowing these trends by the way is only knowing the atomic radius one (which decreases across the table and increases down a group) and everything else is just the opposite of that.
