The 3d part of your answer is correct. n=3 is the third shell and l=2 is d. However, the d subshell contains 5 total orbitals, not 10. You may have been confused and thought it was asking for the maximum number of electrons that can be held in the 3d subshell, in which case 10 would be correct (2 electrons in each orbital).
