As we learned in concept no

Tellurium dioxide -

TeO2 is also a solid with polymeric zig zag structure at room temperature

-

 

 Order of oxidising nature of halogens:
F_{2}> Cl_{2}> Br_{2}> I_{2}

As electronegativity crises, so does oxidizing nature

\therefore F_{2} is the stongest oxidizing agent

Br_{2}

This is incorrect option

Option 2)

I_{2}

This is incorrect option

Option 3)

Cl_{2}

This is incorrect option
