Problem

How would you describe the molecular polarity of SeCl 6?

  1. Nonpolar, because Se-Cl is a nonpolar bond and there is no lone pair on Se
  2. Nonpolar, because Se-Cl is a polar bond but the geometry is symmetric
  3. Polar, because Se-Cl is a polar bond although the geometry is symmetric
  4. Polar, because Se-Cl is a polar bond and there is a lone pair on Se
  5. Polar, because Se-Cl is a nonpolar bond but there is a lone pair on Se
