Solution 1

The only known interhalogen compound of the XX'7 is IF7 . It is formed by sp3d3 hybridization of the central I atom its third excited state. The molecule has a pentagonal bipyramidal structure as shown in

Solution 2

has seven bond pairs and zero lone pairs of electrons. The central iodine atom undergoes sp3d3 hybridisation which results in pentagonal bipyramidal geometry.
