The Correct Answer for in the ground-state electron configuration of fe3+, how many unpaired electrons are present?

Answer:
            Iron has 5 unpaired electrons in Fe⁺³ state.

Explanation:

Iron having atomic number 26 has following electronic configuration in neutral state.

                             Fe =  1s², 2s², 2p⁶, 3s², 3p⁶, 4s², 3d⁶

When Iron looses three electrons it attains +3 charge with following electronic configuration.

                             Fe⁺³ =  1s², 2s², 2p⁶, 3s², 3p⁶, 3d⁵

The five electrons in d-orbital exist in unpaired form as,

                          3(dz)¹, 3d(xz)¹, 3d(yz)¹, 3d(xy)¹, 3(dx²-y²)¹
