5, since there are 5 d orbitals

and each electron occupies a separate orbital before pairing up

There are 5 d orbitals dz2, dxy, dxz, dyz , and dx2-y2 I'm not going to attempt to draw them on here so I found a link so that you can see what they look like http://www.chemeddl.org/resources/TSTS/Stahl/Stahl9-12/Orbitals9to12.html The d orbitals hold a total of 10 electrons so 2 electron per orbital so there can be 5 electrons in the orbital before they pair up
