Question

A covalent molecule AB4 (not a complex) will have which of the following hybridisation if it is square planar.

Solution

Correct option is

sp3d2

A covalent non-complex molecule does not form dsp2 hybridization. AB4with sp3 hybridization is tetrahedral, with sp3d is T-shaped, with sp3d2 is square planar.
