Considering x-axis as the internuclear axis which out of the following will not form a sigma bond and why?

(a) 1s and 1s

(b) 1s and 2px

(c) 2py and 2py

(d) 1s and 2s

##### Solution :-

Right answer is (c) 2py and 2py

2py and 2py orbitals won’t form a $$\sigma$$ as it will undergo lateral over lapping and will form a $$\pi$$ bond.
