You also have to determine the hybridization of the atomic orbitals on the central atom. Use the character labels from the table below to indicate the proper VSEPR arrangement of electron domains around the central atom and the actual structure of the molecule or ion. Note that you have only three tries on each part.

2 Pairs L = Linear
3 Pairs TPL = Trigonal Planar
B = Bent
4 Pairs TET = Tetrahedral
TPY = Trigonal Pyramidal
B = Bent
5 Pairs TBP = Trigonal Bipyramidal
S = See-saw
T = T-shaped
L = Linear
6 Pairs O = Octahedral
SPY = Square Pyramidal
SQP = Square Planar

According to valence bond theory, what hybridization of atomic orbitals on the central I atom in IO4- is necessary to accommodate the shape of IO4-? Enter your answer without superscripts, for example: sp3d2.
