We need to do the following steps:
Step 1: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.
Step 2: Draw the molecular orbital diagram.
Step 3: Determine whether the molecule is paramagnetic
Recall that paramagnetic has at least one electron is unpaired
Using the molecular orbital model, which ones are paramagnetic?
