Solution

The correct option is B The axial bonds are shorter than the equatorial bond
According to Bent's rule, F occupies the axial bonds in the trigonal bipyramidal geometry. Generally, the axial bonds are longer than the equatorial bond since the axial bonds are dp hybridized and the equatorial bonds are sp2 hybridized. However, F is so small and the axial SF bonds are shorter than the equatorial SCl bond.
