Why can't the subshell 2d exist in an atom?

The values of l are 0 and 1 if n = 2. That means the orbital type can only be s or p.

The subshell 2d cannot exist since the greatest possible value of l is n-1. So in this case, since n=2, l can only be 1 or 0. l=1 corresponds with p and l=0 goes with s.
