Sometimes in questions about this quantum number the answer would be n-1; other times it's just n.. Can somebody explain that please I'm confused..

The quantum number, l, corresponds to the subshell ( 0 = s, 1 = p, 2 = d, 3 = f) and can be any value from 0 to n-1. For example, when n = 2, l can be 0 or 1. I don't think l can ever be equal to the value of n. What question are you referring to, in which l is equal to the value of n?
