Periodicity in atomic properties

Which represents the correct order of first ionisation potential of third period elements?


Generally, ionisation potential increases, as we move from left to right in a period. However the ionisation Potential of II group elements is higher than that of the III A group elements. This is because of the fully-filled s-orbitals in II group elements.
Hence, the correct order of ionisation potential is
