Hint:Recall the concept of spectrum of the hydrogen atom. From this emission spectrum, determine when we get the spectral lines for a hydrogen atom. We get the spectral lines when the electron in the hydrogen atom is excited and jumps from the higher energy levels to the lower energy levels. Hence, check the number of spectral lines we can get from the spectrum of the hydrogen atom.

Note: The students can check the number of spectral lines from the formula for number of spectral lines for hydrogen atom which is $N = \dfrac{{n\left( {n - 1} \right)}}{2}$. If the value of this energy level is infinite then the number of spectral lines obtained for hydrogen atom will also be infinite as the division of infinity by any number is also infinity.
