    You're supposed to work backward from the Rydberg formula to the principal quantum number n, and then remember the degeneracy of the hydrogen atom for each value of n.

    are subshells degenerate too?

    In the H atom, yes.

    not in other atoms? i fill the orbitals according to aufbau, paulis and hunds rule..

    No, not in other atoms. As soon as you get electron-electron repulsion, the degeneracy of subshells is lifted.
