Option D - Valence-bond method using hybridized atomic orbitals

The hybridization scheme is sp3\mathrm{sp^{3}}, which is compatible with a tetrahedral distribution of four electron groups. The orbital diagram demonstrates that all four valence electrons of the central C atom occupy all four sp3\mathrm{sp^{3}} hybrid orbitals individually.

Therefore, the bond angles for this given compound is 109.5^{\circ}.
