${d}^{2} s {p}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

Hybridization state increases as steric number (number of bonds+ number of lone pairs) increases. Hybridization increases as follows:

SN=1 or 2, hybridization= $s p$
SN=3, hybridization= $s {p}^{2}$
SN=4, hybridization= $s {p}^{3}$
SN=5, hybridization= $\mathrm{ds} {p}^{3}$
SN=6, hybridization= ${d}^{2} s {p}^{3}$

Since the S atom in $S {F}_{6}$ is bonded to six atoms and has zero lone pairs, its steric number is 6, and its hybridization is ${d}^{2} s {p}^{3}$
