Al has vacant orbital ..
Wouldn't a water molecule coordinate with Al to form [Al (SO_4)_2(OH)_2]^ -
So we must know how many water molecules are coordinated
And what is T l in ques??
Aren 6+6 H2O molecules coordinated to both the metal atoms?
Still is it matching?
Nope... dunno know why
I think we should count the free H2O as sp3 and not the SO4 as they are co-ordinated
Then it matches ... Not sure though
Can you give x y z values that you are getting bro?
Initially I thought this
but now I think x=10 (no. of free H2O)
y will also be 10 = the no. of free H2O
z=1 ( that Tl atom)
But in my problem book they have given even the +1 oxidised metal is formin [M(h2o)6]+
According to solution is
It should be 12 28 1 imo
Don't know then ... Imo 10,10,1
At least z is same for all

Looks like they considered only Aluminium/Tl to be coordinated with water.
Then their answer matches.
Also, can someone confirm if M+3 ion coordinates with water or not and if it does is it 6 molecules or 1 as Mayank posted?

Total No. of lone pairs in XeO2F2
Ans is 12. Im getting 11
Even I'm getting 11
Same getting 11 ,6 on F ,1 on Xe and 4 on O
What does the solution say?
@arush_kumar_singh @Chirag_Hegde @Supreeta_Sen
Idk 4 at all. But 5 I’m getting sp3d it says sp3d2
