After I did the Lewis Structure, I got , but the answer was just ? Why is this? Should their be a 2 because it is in period 2?

Yes, that is what the 2 means. Some books will use it, some will not. Since we are only talking about the valence shell, a lot of sources will only refer to the hybridization without the principal quantum number.

On Quiz 2, will we be expected to provide the principle quantum number before the hybrid orbitals for a certain atom?
