since atomic no. of MCl2=30 so atomic no. of M+2(atomic no. of Cl)=50........x+2*17=50..from here x(atomic no. of M)=16 so according to electronic cofiguration it has 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p4.........now out of its six outermost electrons two are bonded to Cl as Cl-M-Cl with two lone pair on M so its hybridisation=2+2=4 it is sp3 and angular structure just as h2o

Atomic number 50 is tin (Sn). In its +2 oxidation state it does not excite electron from s to p orbital (inert pair effect). So its hybridisation is sp2 and it has 1 lone pair and 2 bond pairs.
