SOF4 - Sulfur Monoxide Tetrafluoride:
First draw the lewis structure:
Electron geometry: trigonal bipyramidal. Hybridization: sp3d
Second determine the 3D molecular geometry with VSEPR rules:
Click and drag the molecle to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of SOF4 is trigonal bipyramidal with asymmetric charge distribution around the central atom.
Therefore SOF4 is polar.
