how would you determine the molecular shape using vsepr?

i got that it has 32 electrons and four bonds.
im stuck on how to get the non bonding domains and shape and bond angle!
thanks!

    Draw the Lewis electron dot structure.
    That shows 4 bonding pair which makes it a tetrahedral molecule.

    yeah i drew it, and i got the for bonding pairs. so it has zero lone pairs correct?

  • chem - ,

    There aren't any non-bonding pairs; four regions of high electron density leads to tetrahedral.
