How many orbitals have the following quantum numbers: n=6, l=2, ml=-2??

a. 0, b. 5, c. 7, d. 10, e.6

Since only one can include n=6 in its equation would it make it just one orbital having those numbers? im also thinking that there might be other orbitals that have these numbers too, is that possible, or is there only 1 possible orbital as i believe?

1. Would i take the n into consideration?? This has to do with quantom numbers by the way.
