1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What does the line spectrum reveal about the energy levels in an atom?

3. The attempt at a solution

The energy levels are quantized

is that right?

Ya! energy levels are--- n2 x 13.6 eV.... when n is an integral value..thus they are quantized the frequency of photons do tell us about the electronic transition going inside the atom......i too need the correct answer...

Every line in the spectrum corresponds to a transition between energy levels. The intensity of the line tells us about the probability of the corresponding transition.
