The first four ionisation energy values of an element are 190, 580, 590, 5960. what will be the number of valence electrons?

Since the fourth ionisation energy is very high as compared to the first three. It means that the element attains noble gas configuration after it loses three electrons and the fourth electron is being removed from a stable noble gas electronic configuration. This indicates that the element has three valence electrons.
