HELP! I am struggling on this question. I think I may or may not have it.

Why does Methane has a tetrahedral shape?
The Valence-shell electon pair repulsion theory applies which predicts that the shape of a molecule by placing the electron pairs on a central atom as far apart as possible to minimize the mutual repulsion of the electrons. In methane the bond to hydrogen is directed to the corners of a telrahedron with bond angles of 109.5*.
