For an orbital with value l = 1,it will be symmetric about
  • ​a either x,y or z axis
  • b the x axis only
  • c the nucleus
  • d it is unsymmetric

Dear Student,

i.e. m= -1,0,+1
This gives rise to three p orbitals px, pz and py which are symmetrical with x,z and y axis respectively. 

Hence, the correct answer is (a)
