. Shape of XeF subscript 2 molecule is
A: Trigonal bi pyramidal
C: Square pyramidal
Correct Option is: (D) Linear
The steric number of XeF2 in molecule is 5 so hybridization is sp3d and geometry becomes Triangle bipyramidal
electronegative atom Fluorine occupies the axial position whereas 3 lone pairs occupy the equatorial position so the shape of the molecule is linear.
