    Sorry, I don't do homework.

    The complex is octahedral with two bidentate ligands. What don't you understand?

    it's not homework, I'm at uni :/
    It's an exam paper for an upcomming test I'm revising for
    I wanted to double check if it's correct, I could send a picture of my answer?
    it's fine tho, I checked with a friend
    thanks anyway

    Just so you can double check, I make it 5 geometrical isomers, one of which is optically active

    Surely top left = bottom right.

    Likewise bottom left = top right.

    Also, the eyes of an examiner noticed your usage of en on the bottom right, rather than L. AND the curious usage of Co.

    whoops!
    silly mistakes! Sorry!!
    Not sure why I wrote Co, haha!
    And the L - I was a little lazy to write the full ligand, but will do the right thing in the exam.

    thank you

    If you to the Wikipedia page on octahedral molecular symmetry, under the other section. This compound is of the form ML2A2B2
