The number of electrons that can be accomodated in each shell is given by $2 {n}^{2}$ rule where n stands for the number of shell. For example you want to check that how many electrons you can accomodate in the first shell then you will just simply apply the $2 {n}^{2}$ rule like $2 {\left(1\right)}^{2}$ that is equal to 2, that means that you cannot accomodate more than 2 electrons in the first shell. For the second shell you will apply the rule again $2 {\left(2\right)}^{2}$ which is equal to 8 that means you cannot accomodate more than 8 electrons in the second shell.
