In Pt(NH3)2Cl(NO2) the oxidation no. of Pt is 2 .. can u explain how?

 The given complex Pt(NH3)2Cl(NO2) is neutral

As we know in coordination compound oxidation state of amino is 0. Oxidation state of Cl is -1 and oxidation state of NO2 is -1. so overall -2 charge is neutralize by +2 charge of Pt. so Pt. is in +2 oxidation state.
