The incorrect statement regarding OSiH32 and OCl2 molecule is/are:

(a) The strength of back bonding is more in OSiH32 molecule than OCl2 molecule

(b) SiOSi bond angle in OSiH32 is greater than ClOCl bond angle in OCl2

(c) The nature of back bond in both molecules is 2pσ3dπ

(d) Hybridisation of central Oatom in both molecules is same
