Question

# Which of the following species have undistorted octahedral structures?1. $$SF_6$$2. $$PF_6^-$$3. $$SiF_6^{2-}$$4. $$XeF_6$$Select the correct answer using the codes given below.

A
1,3 and 4
B
1,2 and 3
C
1,2 and 4
D
2,3 and 4

Solution

## The correct option is B $$1, 2$$ and $$3$$$$XeF_6$$ has a distorted octahedral structure due to the presence of one lone pair of electrons on the $$Xe$$ atom. $$SF_6, PF_6^-$$ and $$SiF_6^{2-}$$ all have undistorted octahedral structures. Chemistry
