look at the aufbau diagram. what is the maximum number electrons that can occupy any orbit
4, 10, 14, 6
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Number of electrons that can occupy any orbit is 2*(2l+1), l =0,1,2,3 corresponding to s,p,d and f labels respectively
Maximum value occurs at l=3, that is 2*(2*3+1) = 2*7 = 14
