We can see that the orbitals have the name sp3 → meaning that this for sure has a hybridized orbitl.
The electron configuration shown below represents:
a. the ground state of boron.
b. the sp3 hybridized state of carbon.
c. the sp3 hybridized state of nitrogen.
d. the ground state of carbon.
e. an excited state of carbon.
