See explanation.

#### Explanation:

The quantum numbers associated to the following orbitals are:

$2 p : n = 2 , l = 1 , {m}_{l} = - 1 , 0 , + 1 , {m}_{s} = - \frac{1}{2} \mathmr{and} + \frac{1}{2}$

$3 s : n = 3 , l = 0 , {m}_{l} = 0 , {m}_{s} = - \frac{1}{2} \mathmr{and} + \frac{1}{2}$

$5 d : n = 5 , l = 2 , {m}_{l} = - 2 , - 1 , 0 , + 1 , + 2 , {m}_{s} = - \frac{1}{2} \mathmr{and} + \frac{1}{2}$
