Question

Hybridization of central atom in NF3 is:



Solution

The correct option is A


We can approach this problem by two ways. Let's take a look at electronic configuration of Nitrogen.

Now why Nitrogen?

Because nitrogen is our central atom.

3 Flourine will overlap with 3 sp3 hybrid orbitals.

 In one sp3 hybrid oribital, a lone pair will be present.

So,  sp3 hybridization

OR

By VSEPR, let's calculate electron pairs.

ep = V+L+AC2 = 5+32 = 4
4 ⇒ tetrahedral geometry ⇒ sp3 hybridization
