  1. a. For n=1, there is no f subshell
    b. an s subshell cannot have 3 electrons
    e. There is no p subshell in an n=1 shell

    That leaves d or f. Consider the maximum number of elctrons each can have and you will have the answer.

    please explain how to figure out subshells The number of subshells is the same as N. If N = 1 we have 1 subshell If N = 2, we have 2 subshells, the s and p If N = 3, we have 3 subshells, the s, p, and d. If N = 4, we have 4
