Best answer
n= no of principle shell
l= azimuthal quantum number
l=0 for s orbital
l=1 for p orbital
l=2 for d orbital
l=3 for f orbital

The orbital with the following quantum numbers are given below.
(a) n=1,l=0  : 1s  orbital
(b) n=3;l=1 : 3p orbital
(c) n=4;l=2 : 4d  orbital
(d) n=4;l=3 :  4f orbital
