Your Answer
C
d
Your Answer
D
All of the above

Solution

The correct option is A s
s orbital is spherical, so it is non-directional in nature.
p orbital is dumbbell shaped and has the directionality associated with it ( px , py , pz ).
d orbitals are double dumbell shaped (except dz2, which has lobes in the z direction and high electron density ring in xy plane). d orbitals are also directional.
The five d orbitals are  dxy, dyz, dzxdx2y2, dz2.
