I'm confused on 2.19 letter b) How many values of ml are allowed for an electron in a 6d-subshell? I know that d correlates to l=2 so then there would be 5 ml values (-2, -1, 0, 1, 2) but doesn't n=6 which would mean l=5 and there would be more values of ml?

If n=6 then l can be 0-5. However, this question gives you more information and says that it n=6 and l=2, and asks you for the ml values specifically for that energy level.
