Question

 

  

The molecular formula of both ‘A’ and ‘B’ is same. 

A’ can be converted to B be boiling in dil. HCl. 

A’ on reaction with oxalic acid yields a complex having the formula Ni(NH3)2(C2O4) but ‘B’ does not. 

From the above information we can say that   

Solution

Correct option is

Both ‘A’ and ‘B’ are square planar, ‘A’ is cis-isomer and ‘B’ is trans-isomer

 

 

In this complex the oxidation state of Ni is +2.

In complex [Ni(NH3)2Cl2],dsp2 hybridisation takes place

(Strong filed ligand)

Thus the complex is square planar. 

The two isomer of the complex are

 

The cis-isomer can easily from a chelate ring with oxalate group. 

The cis-isomer can be converted to trans-isomer on boiling with dil. HCl. Hence ‘A’ is cis-isomer and ‘B’ is trans-isomer.
