A
It exhibits geometrical isomerism
loader
B
It is paramagnetic complex
loader
C
Its geometry is tetrahedron

Solution

The correct option is A It exhibits geometrical isomerism
The 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.
