PCl3 - 4 - 3 - 1 - tetrahedral - trigonal pyramidal

BF3 - 3 - 3 - 0 - trigonal planar - trigonal planar

SeCl2 - 4 - 2 - 2 - tetrahedral - v shaped

SF6 - 6 - 6 - 0 - octahedral - octahedral

CO2 - 4 - 4 - 0 - linear - linear

XeF2 - 5 - 2 - 3 - trigonal bipyramidal - linear

NO3- - 4 - 4 - 0 - trigonal planar - trigonal planar

NO2- - 4 - 3 - 1 - trigonal planar - v shaped

ClF3 - 5 - 3 - 2 - trigonal bipyramidal - T shaped
