The formula is 2n^2. it depends on the value of principal quantum number and ranges from 2,8,18 ans so on for k,l,m,n
s p d f also has 2, 6,10, 14

So maximum should be 14. But in the test its showing answer as 2. Why?

Ashish Gupta said: (Oct 10, 2014)  
Its answer should be 14 as in s p d and f orbital, there are max. 14.

Jagriti said: (Oct 30, 2014)  
Any orbital can accommodate maximum of 2 electron either it belong to s p d f sub shell.

Gowtham said: (Aug 24, 2015)  
That Maximum orbitals is 14 in Explanation but answer shows 2.

Samarjit said: (Jul 9, 2016)  
It should be 14.

Capacities of shells and sub-shells. As the first electron shell contains only one subshell (the s subshell) and this contains only one orbital (which can hold a maximum of 2 electrons), the total number of electrons that the first shell can hold is 2.

Akhilesh said: (Jan 24, 2017)  
As per s, p, d, f orbital configuration s can have maximum 2 electrons, p = 6, d = 10 and f = 14.

Why 2 is the maximum capability of orbit?

It is wrong.
