Please find below the solution to the asked query:

Degree of freedom is the total number of coordinates required to describe completely the position of the system. Carbon mono oxide have seven degree of freedom. Three degree of freedom for translational motion and two degree of freedom for rotational motion. Vibrational motion between the C and O has two degree of freedom. Thus, total degree of freedom for carbon monoxide is seven.

Hope this information will clear your doubts about the topic.
