Any orbital can only contain a maximum of 2 electrons. Each energy level has a set of orbitals and the maximum number of electrons varies depending on the energy level.

Each orbital contains maximum or 2 electrons. you could be either asking for this OR s orbital contains maximum of 2 electrons (has 1 orbitals) p orbital contains maximum of 6 electrons (has 3 orbitals) d orbital contains maximum of 10 electrons (has 5 orbitals)
