Can anyone tell me which of the following molecules has a different hybridization from the other three?

As long the central atom in each case is surrounded by the same number groups (atoms, functional group, or lone pair), you can safely say that they possess the same hybridisation state.

  If you could start new topics when you have new qustions, that would save me a considerable amount of work.  Thanks,
