• # question_answer Statement I Central atom of peroxy disulphuric acid is sp3 hybridised. Statement II This is due to the presence of peroxy linkage (-O-O-) is peroxy disulphuric agent. A)  Both Statement I and Statement II are true and the Statement II is the correct explanation of the Statement I B)  Both Statement I and Statement II are true but the Statement II is not the correct explanation of the Statement I C)  Statement I is true but Statement II is false D)  Both Statement I and Statement II are false

Correct Answer: A

Solution :

This problem contain conceptual mixing of structure   of   peroxydisulphuric   acid   and hybridisation. The hybridisation of S in ${{H}_{2}}{{S}_{2}}{{O}_{8}}$is sp3 hybridised hence structure around S is sp3 hybridised. This structure can be described for ${{H}_{2}}{{S}_{2}}{{O}_{8}}$ is only due to presence of (-O-O-) peroxy bond.
