Hybridization cam be found relatively straightforward by drawing out the lewis structures for each molecule!

Here's a good video that goes through types of hybridization with lots of examples!

### Re: 2F.5

For hybridization, you should be able to know it by drawing out the Lewis Structure. Then, you can look at the number of electron densities in order to figure out the hybridization.
For rules of hybridization, 2 electron densities means sp, 3 electron densities means sp2, 4 electron densities means sp3, 5 electron densities means sp3d, and 6 electron densities means sp3d2.
