We are being asked to list the four different sublevels and determine the maximum number of electrons that can exist in each sublevel.
Let's first recall the subshells (or sublevels) and their electron orbitals.
s subshell→ 1 orbital
List the four different sublevels and (given that only a maximum of two electrons can occupy an orbital) determine the maximum number of electrons that can exist in each sublevel.
