🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Wolf's class at ASU.
We are being asked to identify the hybridization of the central atom in GeH4.
First, we will have to draw the Lewis Structure of GeH4.
Step 1: Determine the central atom in this molecule.
• Hydrogen (H) only forms 1 bond →Ge is the central atom
Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.
Indicate the hybridization of the central atom in GeH4.
