Answer

A) Draw out the structure of the molecule. Because there are two bonding pairs, it forms a linear structure to minimize electron pair repulsion. B) Draw out the structure of the molecule. Because there are four bonding pairs it forms a tetrahedral structure to minimize electron pair repulsion. C) Draw out the structure of the molecule. Because there are three bonding pairs, it forms a trigonal planar structure to minimize electron repulsion. D) Draw out the structure of the molecule. Because there are two bonding pairs and two nonbonding structures, it forms a bent structure to minimize electron repulsion. E) Draw out the structure of the molecule. Because there are two bonding pairs, it forms a linear structure to minimize electron pair repulsion. F) Because there are two bonding pairs and two nonbonding pairs on the central atom, the molecule forms a bent structure.
