Homework Help: CHEMISTRY

What is the geometric structure of the water molecule?

How many pairs of valence electrons are there on the oxygen atom in the water molecule? I know oxygen has 6 valence electrons (since it is in group 6 on the periodic table), but would it have 8 (4 pairs) since it is combined with the two hydrogen atoms?
