Solution

## The correct option is C (a)−(iii),(b)−(i),(c)−(iv),(d)−(ii)(a)−(iii),XX′ has linear geometry as only two atoms are present. (b)−(i),XX′3 has T-shaped geometry as 3 bond pairs and 2 lone pairs of electrons are present. The electron pair geometry is trigonal bipyramidal.(c)−(iv),XX′5 has Square - pyramidal geometry as 5 bond pairs and 1 lone pair of electrons are present. The electron pair geometry is octahedral.(d)−(ii)XX′7 has pentagonal bipyramidal geometry as 7 bond pairs and 0 lone pairs of electrons are present.
