when an excitation in an atom occurs, does the electron lose or gain energy? i got this wrong on one of our tests so does anyone mind explaining it to me? thanks!

When an electron absorbs energy, it goes into an excited state. When it returns to its unexcited state, the electron loses energy by emitting it through light.

To excite an electron it must be transferred energy. When an electron returns back to its normal state, it releases energy.
