Electron geometry: Linear Molecular geometry: linear Idealized bond angle: $180^{\circ}$ Deviation from idealized bond angle : no

Work Step by Step

$CS_2$ has 2 double covalent bonds between C and S atoms. Its electron geometry is linear since carbon has no lone pairs. Its molecular geometry is also linear. Its idealized bond angle is that of the linear geometry, $180^{\circ}$. The molecule is linearly symmetrical and there is no deviation from the idealized bond angle.
