Solution

## The correct option is A SF4 In SF4, Total number of electrons around S=6+4=10 Number of bond pairs=4 Number of lone pairs=1 steric number=5 So hybridization of sulphur here is sp3d In BF−4 Total number of electrons around S=3+4+1=8 Number of bond pairs=4 Number of lone pairs=0 steric number=4 So hybridization of boron here is sp3 In NH+4 Total number of electrons around N=5+4−1=8 Number of bond pairs=4 Number of lone pairs=0 Steric number=4 So hybridization of nitrogen here is sp3 In CH4 Total number of electrons around N=4+4=8 Number of bond pairs=4 Number of lone pairs=0 Steric number=4 So hybridization of carbon here is sp3  Suggest Corrections  0      Similar questions  Related Videos   CHEMISTRY
