Why I have this error?

My MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,oneside]{book}

\usepackage[showframe]{geometry}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{booktabs, makecell, multirow, tabularx,
            threeparttable, tabulary}
\renewcommand\theadfont{\small\bfseries} % for bold in table using \small
\renewcommand\theadgape{}
\usepackage[svgnames, table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{siunitx} %for table spacing to second row
\usepackage{graphicx}

\usepackage[font=small,
            labelfont={bf,sf}, textfont={sf}, 
            justification=centering]{caption}

\begin{document}

    Replace "c" with "S". Also, adapt the numbers according to the table content. For the second column, use 2.2 instead of 6, for the third c use, 1.4.

  • LaTeX's basic l, c and r column types do not take arguments.

The c type column does not accept an optional argument, hence the error message you get. In order to make your code compilable, replace c with S. The latter is a column type defined by the siunitx package, which, among others accepts the table-format option that you used. In order to get the correct alignment of the numbers, as well as the right column widths, you should also correct the values of table-format according to the contents of the corresponding table columns. In the following example, I have also added @{\extracolsep{\fill}} in order to make sure the table is as wide as the specified width, while the columns are spread evenly:
