    I think there has to be 3 but I'm not positive about it.

    n=1 shell means there's only s orbitals. n=2 means s and p orbitals. n=4 gives s, p, d, and only from this level, the f orbital. So the n=3 level would give three orbitals that are s, p, and...

    I think it's B, s p and d You can have 3s and 3p Because you can have 4s and then 3d, Which is the lowest value d can take on. Starts for the transition metals.

    It's not D or E because the f orbital is not found in anything less than n=4. N=3 means that there will be three orbitals in the energy level, which prevents a or c from being the answer.
