Why are low spin tetrahedral complexes not formed?

Question:

Why are low spin tetrahedral complexes not formed?

Solution:

For tetrahedral complexes, the crystal field splitting energy is too low. It is lower than pairing energy so, the pairing of electrons is not favoured and therefore the complexes cannot form low spin complexes.
