how do we do hybridisation for hcooh

The hybridization of carbon in HCOOH is sp2 since it makes 2 single bonds with hydrogen and one oxygen atom and a double bond with other oxygen atom.

The doubly bonded oxygen atom is sp2 hybridized (1 double bond and two lone pairs)  

The other oxygen is sp3 hybridized (two single bonds and two lone pairs).
