Hybridization

Q. Since the hybridization of the central atom is usually the only factor needed to determine molecular shape, you can simplify by considering only the hybridization of the central atom. Using this simplified method, the O atom of Co2 would bond with one of its p or s orbitals. Use valence bond theory to devise a hybridization scheme for CO2. Match the items in the left column to the appropriate blanks in the sentences on the right. Make certain each sentence is complete before submitting your answer.
