Answer:

There are two unpaired electrons in Germanium atom.

Explanation:

Using the Hund's rule,we can determine the unpaired electrons of Germanium.By using Aufbau rule,we can see that the last two elecrons of germanium enter the p orbital and then we will use Hund's rule and see that the spin of these two electons is same and they stay at two different shells.
