Step 2

In the given complex, the metal platinum exists as Pt (II). Thus, its electronic configuration is [ Xe ] 4f145d8. The distribution of electrons occurs such that the dxy, dyz, dzx, and dz2 orbitals are filled with two electrons each and dx2-y2 remains vacant.

Step 3

The electron from a filled pi-bonding molecular orbital of ethene is donated to the vacant orbit...
