ionic bonding 2A.13

In homework problem 2A.13, part (b), why would a 3p orbital need to be removed from Cl in order to form a +1 ion?

Chlorine has the ground state electron configuration of [Ne]3s1 3p5. An electron is always removed from the outermost subshell present. In this case, the outermost subshell is 3p.
