How many orbitals are present in the
(a) 4p-subshell?
(b) 3d-subshell?
(c) 1s-subshell?
(d) 4f-subshell?

a) 3 orbitals
b) 5 orbitals
c) 1 orbital
d) 7 orbitals
To find the orbitals present in a respective subshell, you identify the subshell and the l value it is associated with. For s, l=0. For p, l = 1. For d, l = 2. The number of orbitals is then determined by the ml value: l, l-1,..., -l.

a) p corresponds to three orbitals
b) d corresponds to five orbitals
c) s corresponds to one orbital
d) f corresponds to seven orbitals

a) Three orbitals
b) Five orbitals
c) One orbital
d) Seven orbitals

Try to make note of the number of orbitals in each type of subshell...
s: 1 orbital
p: 3 orbitals
d: 5 orbitals
f: 7 orbitals

Below always holds true:
s: 1 orbital
p: 3 orbitals
d: 5 orbitals
f: 7 orbitals
g: 9 orbitals

The lettered orbitals are what matters in context, the number "4" for example in 4s or 4p is arbitrary.

the number of orbitals is represented by the number of ml values
