The shape/structure of [XeF5]– and XeO3F2, respectively are :
(1) octahedral and square pyramidal
(2) trigonal bipyramidal and trigonal bipyramidal
(3) trigonal bipyramidal and pentagonal
(4) pentagonal planar and trigonal bipyramidal

Ans. (4) pentagonal planar and trigonal bipyramidal
Sol. (i) XeF5–
St. No. = (5 + 2) = 7
so hybridisation is = sp3d3 and structure is pentagonal planar.
St. No. = 5
so hybridisation is = sp3d and structure is trigonal bipyramidal.
