Consider this set of quantum numbers: n = 3, l = 2, ml = 1, ms = +½
The maximum number of electrons in an atom which can share the above set of quantum numbers is

The quantum state is fixed when specifying n, l, ml and ms. Therefore, by the Pauli exclusion principle, there can be only one electron with these quantum nembers.
