As we have learned

Geometrical Isomers -

This is due to the difference in relative position of the ligands attached to the central metal atom with respect to each other

-

Aqua chlorobis (ethylencdiamine) Cobalt (II) Chloride.Will show geometrical isomerism

[Co(H2O)Cl(en)2]Cl

 


Option 1)

aquachlorobis(ethylenediamine) cobalt(II) chloride

This is correct

Option 2)

pentaaquachlorochromium(III) chloride

This is incorrect

Option 3)

potassium amminetrichloroplatinate( II)

This is incorrect
