Which species has the maximum number of lone pair of electrons on the central atom?


A
[ClO3]

B
XeF4

C
SF4
loader
D
[I3]

Solution

The correct option is D $$[I_{3}]^-$$
$$[ClO_3]^-: \ \          sp^3 $$ hybridised and $$1$$ lone pair.

$$X_e F_4  :       \ \       sp^3d^2$$ hybridised and $$2$$ lone pairs.

$$SF_4        :    \ \         sp^3 d$$ hybridized and $$1$$ lone pair.

$$[I_3]^-      :  \ \         sp^3d$$ hybridised and $$3$$ lone pairs.   

Hence, option D is correct.
