Solution

The correct option is D d2sp3,d2sp3
(d2sp3 hybridization)
Six empty orbitals (two d, one s and three p) are available, so whether the ligand is weak (H2O) or strong (CN) the six orbitals hybridize to give six equivalent d2sp3 hybrid orbitals. Hence, in both [Cr(H2O)6]3+ and [Cr(CN)6]3 ions chromium is in a state of d2sp3 hybridization.
