We will most likely need to know the "Bent" shape, which is what water is. It would be a tetrahedron but its bond angles are different due to the lone pair of electrons acting as one of the regions of electron density. I would at least remember that lone electron pairs have a different effect on the shape and that VSEPR only counts the atoms and not the electron pairs for the general structure (if anyone can clarify this part of the rule that would be great since I don't fully understand it).
