Question

The species in which the central atom uses sp2 hybrid orbitals in its bonding is :

Solution

Correct option is

From PH3, NH3 and SbH3 are all sp3 hybridised. Their central atom has both bond pair as well as lone pair electrons. The lone pair occupy the fourth orbital.  has only three pairs of electrons so it is sp2 hybridised.
