Electron behaviour

An increase in energy level from E 1 to E 2 re...

Why an electron in level N when it gain energy it go to a higher energy level , why not going to a lower energy level , considering that word “higher” and “lower” refers to no of energy level but the energy of the energy level decrease as we go away from nucleus so an excited electron that gain an additional energy transfer to a higher energy level in no but lower in energy so why the electron doesn’t from its level to a lower energy level in no but higher in energy so the new energy level can bear the energy of the excited electron ?

The question is not very clear. If you can explain it further, it will be better to discuss here.
