4.30     Which hybrid orbitals are used by carbon atoms in the following molecules?

(c)  $CH_{3}-CH_{2}-OH$

$CH_{3}-CH_{2}-OH$

$C_{1}$ is making 4 sigma bonds (single bond) therefore it is $sp^3$ hybridised.

and $C_{2}$ is also making a 4 sigma bonds. therefore it is also  $sp^3$ hybridised.

Therefore they both are $sp^3$ hybridized.
