Best Adsense Ad unit selection:

  1. Responsive Ad units are Good and can suitable for mobile view.
  2. 300×250 commonly used Ad unit(text+video). suitable for sidebar widget. also, inside the post.
  3. In-Article are best to place between posts.
  4. In-Feed Ads are Good to place Ads in the Category, Archive lists feed.

Most of the new WordPress themes can able to make large size Ads into Responsive. so if you want to place a larger Ad unit check your theme and Ad visibility in Mobile view.

Try different Ad units and different places to get the optimum results. make sure your content is more then Ads.

The WordPress settings have default HTML codes adding the option in widget Areas. by using Widgets you can add Adsense and other ads on sidebars and Footers. some themes have the header place widget. also, Ads optimized themes available out there. but they cost money.
