Solution

The correct option is C s+px+py+pz+dz2+dx2y2
sp3d2 is hybridisation for octahedral geometry.
In octahedron, bonds are formed along three mutually perpendicular directions (like coordinate axes x, y and z). Hence, dz2 and dx2y2 are involved to form hybrid orbitals due to their alignment along axes similar to p-subshell orbitals.
