Dear  prashant ,

When you draw out the Lewis structure for XeF2, with Xe having three lone pairs and two bonds with each F, with a total steric number of 5. This also means that there are five orbitals present. The only possible hybridization with five orbitals is dsp3 hybridization. (1d+1s+3p=5dsp3)
If you think in terms of VSEPR geometry, XeF2 has a trigonal bipyramidal design. Trigonal Bipyramidals have dsp3 hybridization.

so it has 5 orbitals in hybridisation.
