Dear raj,

 Size of the hybrid orbitals : Since s-orbitals are closer to the nucleus than p-orbitals, it is reasonable to expect that greater the s character of an orbital the smaller it is. Thus the decreasing order of the size of the three hybrid orbitals is opposite to that of the decreasing order of  orbital character in the three hybrid orbitals.

 

            sp3 > sp2 > sp
