Question: Is a hybrid structure and a superposition the same thing? (I'm interested in the case of benzene)

Read many sources but they were contradictory..

Please help!
Ok, but does benzene have a superposition as well as a hybrid structure?

Superpositions of energy eigenstates normally only come into play when you electronically excite a molecule (for example, when the molecule is interacting with light).
