Answer:

Below

Explanation:

Pauli exclusion principle states that no electron in an atom can have the same 4 quantum numbers. The quantum numbers are #n, l, m_1 and m_s#

#n# is the principal quantum number

#l# is the angular momentum quantum number which determines the shape of the orbital

#m_1# is the magnetic quantum number and describes the orientation of an orbital around the nucleus

#m_s# is the spin quantum number and has 2 possible values ie #m_s=+-1/2#
