is there any way to identify bridged complexes ?

my teacher just drew the complex and I failed to understand why OH should act as a brigding ligand...

Im aware carbonyls generally act as bridging ligands but now how do u find the number of bridged ligands??/

    $\begingroup$ If the formula is written down like in your examples, it is a way to guide you. There are no rules, as there can't be, to get the structural information from a sum formula. $\endgroup$ Aug 21, 2021 at 13:34
