HW 1E.7

How can you tell that a) and b) are in the excited state? I can see that c) is excited and d) is in the ground state, but I'm not sure how the first two are.

For a, the orbitals should fill with parallel electrons in separate orbitals first rather than a pair because that is in a lower energy state. For b, the spin of the electrons in each orbital should all face the same way as that is also a lower energy state.
