What are the principal and orbital angular momentum quantum numbers for each of the following orbitals?
a) 2s
b) 6f
c) 4d
d) 5p

When determining the principal and orbital angular quantum numbers, you must keep in mind that n (the principal quantum number) corresponds with the energy level {1,2,3...} and that is given in the beginning of the number. The l (the angular quantum number) corresponds to the number associated with the orbital (s-0, p-1, d-2, f-3).
