Hi Momin,
The maximum number of electrons which can be accommodated in K, L, M and N shells are as follows.
K - shell: 2 electrons
L - shell: 8 electrons
M – shell:18 electrons
N – shell: 32 electrons
Hope, this answers your question.
Best wishes!

you can determine the number of electrons in any shell by using the formula 2n2 . here n is the position of the shell.

k shell-2n2- 2x12=2

got it?
