Concept Questions :-

Hybridisation

SCl4 is not isostructural of SiCl4 because it shows square planar structure due to involvement of repulsion between lone pair and bond pair of electrons.

SO42- shows tetrahedral structure due to sp3 hybridisation.

PO43- shows tetrahedral structure due to sp3 hybridisation.

NH4+ shows tetrahedral structure due to sp3 hybridisation.
