### 4.93

Why are all the Carbon atoms in 4.93 SP^3 hybridized? Don't they only have 3 regions of electron density each?

I don't know what question you're referring to but for sp3 must be 4 regions of electron density. You might be missing a lone pair or if it's a coordination bond there might be a hydrogen attached that isn't shown.
