PF3Cl2 - Phosphorus Trifluoride Dichloride:
First draw the Lewis dot structure:
Electron geometry: trigonal bipyramidal. Hybridization: sp3d
Then draw the 3D molecular structure using VSEPR rules:
Don't put the chlorine atoms directly across from each other;
the fluorine atoms are more electronegative than chlorine and will repel each other more strongly.
Click and drag the molecle to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of PF3Cl2 is trigonal bipyramidal with asymmetric charge distribution on the central atom.
Therefore PF3Cl2 is polar.
This is somewhat of a rare molecule, but here is one similar:
