Problem

Government agencies that deal with health issues are concerned that the American diet contains too much meat, and numerous recommendations have been made urging people to consume more fruit and vegetables. One of the richest sources of vegetable protein is soy, available in many forms. One form is soybean curd, or tofu, which is a staple of many Asian diets. Chemists have isolated an anticancer agent called genistein from tofu, which may explain the much lower incidence of cancer among people in the Far East. A valid Lewis structure for genistein is

Is the hybridization of each C in the right-hand ring the same? Explain.
