Expert's answer
The electronic configuration of chlorine ground state is
1s22s22p63s23p5
The electronic configuration of chlorine first excited state is
1s22s22p63s23p44s1
So, this electron is on 4s orbital and can be characterized by the following quantum numbers:
n = 4
l = 0
m = 0
The minimum and maximum value of (n+l+m) coinciding and equals to 4
