1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The problem is: find all possible quantum numbers for each electronic configure of carbon.

2. The attempt at a solution
I don't quite understand what the question is asking. Does it ask first write down the electronic configuration and write down all quantum number combination? Like the following

The electronic configuration for carbon is $$1S^2 2S^2 2P^2$$

1) n=1, l=0
because 2s+1=2 => s=1/2
ms = 1/2, -1/2

2) n=2, l=0 or 1

so,

n=2, l=0, ms=1/2, -1/2

n=2, l=1, ms=1/2, -1/2

Looks good for the most part, but there is also ml to consider.

ml? What's that?
