Which elements have the same electron arrangement as Argon Chlorine Sulfur or Potassium?

No element has the exact same election arrangement as another element. However ion can have the same election arrangement as another element. For example Chloride (Cl-) has the same configuration as Argon, and Potassium (I) (K+) also has the same configuration as argon.

What is the proportion of mass of Chlorine and Argon gas in a given volume?

The mass of the chlorine atom is 35.5. The mass of the argon atom is 40. So you may think that the argon is more massive than chlorine. That is not correct.In a given volume of gas, at given pressure and temperature, the number of molecules are same in case of the gas. Chlorine molecule has got two atoms. The argon remains single. So the mass of chlorine molecule is 35.5*2 = 71. the mass of argon atom and molecule is 40.So the chlorine gas is much massive as compared to argon gas. The proportion goes to be 71 to 40, to be exact.

Why doesn't chlorine become an argon atom when it ends up with a noble gas electron configuration?

Because the number of protons in chlorine atom and chloride ion are the same (17 protons). The element argon has 18 protons.

How do scientists know that no one will discover an element between sulfur and chlorine?

because the atomic number of each element is an integer and it increases than its preceding one in the same period by one
