    Answer:

    See explanation

    Explanation:

    According to the valence shell electron pair repulsion theory, the shape of a molecule depends on the number of electron pairs on the valence shell of the central atom in the molecule.

    So, in order to identify the electron domain geometry of a molecule (number of regions of electron density)

    1) draw the full Lewis structure of the molecule/ion

    2) indicate the electron pairs surrounding the central atom

    3) count the number of electron pairs surrounding the central atom

    4) decide on the electron pair geometry using valence shell electron pair repulsion theory.
