The unit cell satisfies the condition of tertragonal structure.

Work Step by Step

Given that $a=0.356 nm$, $b=0.35nm$ and $c=0.45 nm$ $\alpha=\beta=\gamma=90^\circ$ In the given figure: $a=b\ne c$ and $\alpha=\beta=\gamma=90^\circ$ From table 3.2, it is determined that the unit cell is tertragonal.
