# (Crystal Field Theory) Strong field ligands such as $CN^-$:

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{usually produce high spin complexes and small crystal field splittings}\\(b)\;\text{usually produce low spin complexes and small crystal field splittings}\\(c)\;\text{usually produce low spin complexes and high crystal field splittings}\\(d)\;\text{usually produce high spin complexes and high crystal field splittings}\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

Strong field ligands such as $CN^-$ usually produce low spin complexes and high crystal field splittings.
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
