Orbital Overlap

Q. Sigma bonds can form between different types of orbitals. The main criterion of sigma bond formation is that the two bonded atoms have valence orbitals with lobes that point directly at each other along the line between the two nuclei. The images below show the shapes of two orbitals on adjacent atoms. Choose all the combinations that will lead to formation of a sigma bond. (Select all that apply.)
