Expert Answer:

We can calculate the number of spectral lines by using the formula,

Number of spectral lines = n(n-1)/2

Here n=6

Therefore the no. of spectral lines emitted = 6(6-1)/2

                                                                   = 30/2

                                                                   = 15 lines

So there will be 15 spectral lines emitted when the excited electron of  Hydrogen atom in n = 6 drops to the ground state.
