Structure of ICl2^- (1) Trigonal (2) Octahedral (3) Square planar (4) Distorted trigonal pyramidal

Answer: (4)

The ICl2has sp3d-hybridized structure having trigonal bipyramidal shape but due to the presence of lone pair of electron on iodine atom the structure is distorted. The three lone pairs are in the equatorial positions, leaving the Cl and I in a linear molecular shape.
