It is a noble gas, so it has a full octet, with eight electron dots around the outside of the symbol, Ne, though I can't draw it, you can picture it as two dots on each side of the symbol.

As with all noble gases the electron configuration has a full octet of #s^2 p^6#.

IN the case of Neon it would be #2s^2 2p^6#
