For octahedral $\require{mhchem}\ce{Mn(ll)}$ and tetrahedral $\ce{Ni(ll)}$ complexes, consider the following statements :

(l) both the complexes can be high spin.

(ll) $\ce{Ni(ll)}$ complex can very rarely be of low spin.

(lll) with strong field ligands, $\ce{Mn(ll)}$ complexes can be low spin.

(lV) aqueous solution of $\ce{Mn(ll)}$ ions is yellow in color.

The correct statements are :

(1) (l) and (ll) only

(2) (l), (ll) and (lll) only

(3) (l), (lll) and (lV) only

(4) (ll), (lll) and (lV) only

Ans. (2) (l), (ll) and (lll) only

Sol. With weak field ligands $\ce{Mn(II)}$ will be of high spin and with strong field ligands it will be of low spin. $\ce{Ni(II)}$ tetrahedral complexes will be genrally of high spin due to sp3 hybridisation. $\ce{Mn(II)}$ is of light pink color in aqueous solution.
