    Solution:

    Statement A in relation to the hydrogen atom is correct 3s, 3p and 3d orbitals all have the same energy

    The energy of the hydrogen atom, which has a single electron and is in the state of 1s1 will be the same for its 3s, 3p, and 3d orbitals as it is for its 15th orbital since the hydrogen atom only has one electron.
