In the Zeeman splittings of ionized Neon, g-factors arise from 3s, 3p and 4s states have been studied. The intensity of the spectral lines associated with the 4s state is weak and therefore, it is limited to study the g-factors upto 3s and 3p states. The theoretical values of g-factor are compared with observed values of 3s and 3p states. It is shown that some spectral terms and of 3p state have anomalous values of g-factors. In the inert gases, the deviation in the anomalous values of g-factors from normal values increases with increase of atomic number.
