What are the products of partial hydrolysis of $\ce{XeF_6}$?
Is $\ce{XeOF_4}$ formed or $\ce{XeO_2F_2}$ is formed?

Both can be formed. It depends on the amount of water added: \begin{align} &&\ce{XeF6 + H2O &-> XeOF4 + 2HF}\\ &\text{or}& \ce{XeF6 + 2H2O &-> XeO2F2 + 4HF}\\ &\text{or even}& \ce{XeF6 + 3H2O &-> XeO3 + 6HF} \end{align}
