To determine magnetic quantum number (ml), you must look at the angular momentum number (l). ml can be any value from -l to +l. For example, if l=2, then ml=-2, -1, 0, 1, 2. If l=0, then ml has one possible value, = 0.
The magnetic quantum number is dependent on the angular momentum number. The angular momentum number or L determines the magnetic quantum number as it is -L to +L, so if L=3 then the magnetic quantum number can be -3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3.
