Select ALL that apply.

A

The Cl-C bond is best described as being formed by ${ sp }^{ 3 }-sp$ overlap.

B

The C-H bonds are best described as being formed by ${ sp }^{ 3 }-p$ overlap.

C

Two of the H-C-H bond angles are close to 90${ }^{ \circ }$ while the other is close to 180${ }^{ \circ }$.

D

The triple bond is best described by $sp-sp$, $p-p$ and $p-p$ overlap.

E

The Cl-C-C and the C-C-C bond angles are both approximately 109${ }^{ \circ }$ because the carbon atoms at the center of these angles have 4 bonds.

F

The sketch below is a good illustration of the $\sigma $ portion of the triple bond formed by $sp-sp$ overlap.
