Question

# Which of the following is true about the complex $$[PtCl_2(H_2O)(NH_3)]$$?

A
It exhibits geometrical isomerism
B
It is paramagnetic complex
C
Its geometry is tetrahedron
D
Platinum is sp3 hybridised

Solution

## The correct option is A It exhibits geometrical isomerismThe complex $$[PtCl_2(H_2O)(NH_3)]$$ exhibits geometrical isomerism in the form of cis and trans isomers.The oxidation state of platinum is +2 its outer electronic configuration is $$5d^8$$.Pt undergoes $$dsp^2$$ hybridization which results in square planar geometry.All electrons are paired and the molecule is diamagnetic in nature.Hence, the correct option is A.Chemistry
