    Atomic number (Z) of tungsten is 74

    Mass number (A) of tungsten is 184

    Now:

    Atomic number of an element = Number of protons = Number of electrons

    Mass number = Number of Protons + Number of neutrons

    In the case of tungsten

    Total Number of electrons = 74

    Jeffrey has already added 21 electrons

    Number of electrons needed = 74 - 21 = 53

    Ans (D) 53 more electrons are needed to complete the neutral atom of tungsten.
