Views

In fluorine d-orbitals are absent and also it has very high electronegativity and small size.o it shows only +1 oxidation state in oxo-acid, but not + 3, + 5 or + 7. Hence It forms only one oxoacid $HOF$ and doesn't form oxoacid having other oxidation states than +1 like$HOFO,HOFO_2 \:and \:HOFO_3.$
