sp 4 Hybridisation is not possible. And simple reason is that p-subshell has only 3 orbitals. If we take sp 4 into consideration, then what would have been the consequences that prove that it is impossible to have sp 4 .

For p-orbital, the azimuthal quantum number is 1
l = 1

so the magnetic quantum number m can -1,0,1 so only 3 orbitals are possible

Thanks
