I wanted to know what part of men in Arwah and which is not? From this website it mention 2 things.

The man’s ‘awrah is between the navel and the knee, and some of them include the navel and the knee in the ‘awrah.

From what we learn from elders that it is between naval and knee. So does a shorts just covering over knee valid for praying? I have heared someone said when u sit, if the shorts come to the thighs it is not valid namaz?

    Basically there's a difference of opinion on this matter and it is better to leave any doubt and take the most covering option. And I guess if you added the tag awrah you may even find similar questions on the site. Like What is the 'Awrah of men ... which might be a helpful.

From below knee to above naval and shoulders. But showing a greater modesty is always great.
