Expert Answer:

Basic concept of crystal field theory :
In transion elements d orbitals have unpaired electrons or paired electrons when ever these elements are aprooached by any other specie like a ligand which has electron density on it ,these electrons experience certain repulsion and energy of the 5 d orbitals become delocalised.
Depending on the approach of the ligand the d orbitals split themselves in order of their energy
