Expert Answer

Step 1

The d orbital electrons of a transition metal split into high and low energy levels in ligand field. The splitting will be high in stronger ligand field and the splitting will be less in weaker ligand field.

Step 2

Given that, plane of the molecule is perpendicular to the Z-axis.  That means, there is no ligand in Z axis in trigonal planar geometry. The energy of dz2 orbital is the lowest as it experiences least repulsion from the ligands. The dx2-y2 an...
