Question

Which of the following molecule having perfect tetrahedral shape, according to VSEPR theory?


A
SO2F2
loader
B
SO24
loader
C
SO3
loader
D
SF4
loader

Solution

The correct option is B SO24
A) SO2F2 is sp3 hybridized. However, since repulsions between double bonds are greater than repulsions between single bonds, the structure will be distorted tetrahedral.


B) SO24 is sp3 hybridized with perfectly tetrahedral shape.


c) SO3 is sp2 hybridized and has trigonal planar shape.


d) SF4 is sp3d hybridized and has see saw shape with lone pair occupies the equatorial position.
