Is there a difference between a linear-linear and a trigonal bipyramidal- linear, or are they considered the same linear? I got linear for this question as an answer because there were 2 bonds and three lone pairs on the central atom which is a linear.

They are two different shapes/structures but are both called linear just like there is a Bent for three regions of electron density and a Bent for four regions of electron density.
