Hello Student
"e" refers to doubly degenerate orbitals.It consists of two d-orbitals.
"t" refers to triply degenerate levels orbitals. It consists of three d-orbitals. Degenerate means having same energy. They derive from group theory.

The "g" tells you that the orbitals are gerade (german for even) - they have the same symmetry with respect to the inversion centre.
