Write all the geometrical isomers of [Pt(NH3)(Br)(Cl)(py)] and how many of these will exhibit optical isomers?

There are four different types of ligands present in the complex. So, by fixing the position of 2 ligands we get 2 geometrical isomers and by changing the position of fixed isomer we get one more geometrical isomer.

Since it is tetrahedral complex so it should be optically active . But however it has not been possible to resolve optically active d and l forms of such a complex due to its complicated nature.
