Step 1

Hybridization of oxygen atom in SO2:

The number of valence electrons in sulfur is 6

The number of valence electrons in oxygen is 6

Calculate the total valence electrons. If the value lies between 9 and 56, divide by 8 and find the first quotient (Q1). Divide the remainder (R1) by 2 and find the second quotient (Q2). Add the quotients and the final remainder (R2)

The obtained value corresponds to the type of hybridization.

Step 2

The hybridization of central atom sulfur is sp2 and each of the oxygen atom has the same hybridization sp2

Step 3

(a)

The structure of sulfur dioxide shown in figure 1.

We know that, two electrons or one pair of electron equals to one bond. Since there are two sigma...
