CLO2+ has three regions of electron density (one lone pair and two double bonds), but since the name of the shape of a compound is only based on bonds and excludes lone pairs, its shape is angular/bent. In terms of electron density regions, however, it is trigonal planar.
the electron geometry would be trigonal planar, because we are not considering lone pairs, only the atoms. However if we want to know the shape, we would take into consideration the lone pairs of the structure, 1, so the shape would be bent.
