#### Answer

Slater's rules give more accurate estimate of $Z_{eff}$.

#### Work Step by Step

Comparing both results from part (a) and part (b), we find that Slater's rules give more closer results to the mentioned $Z_{eff}$ for the outermost electrons in Si and Cl. Therefore, Slater's rules give more accurate estimate in this case.
