##### Solution :-

(a) CH3-CH3

Here, C1 and C2 are having sp3 hybridization.

(b) CH3-CH=CH2

Here, C3 and C2 are having sp2 hybridization and C1 is having sp3 hybridization.

(c) CH3-CH2-OH

Here, C1 and C2 are having sp3 hybridization.

(d) CH3-CHO

Here, C1 is having sp3 hybridization and C2 is having sp2 hybridization.

(e) CH3COOH

Here, C1 is having sp3 hybridization and C2 is having sp2 hybridization.
