VSEPR

For something with the formula AXE3, would the bond angles be 180 because the molecular shape is linear?

Yeah! The shape is linear with bond angles 180 degrees

Yes, Since the central atom (A) only has one atom bound to it (X), it has to be linear. The lone pairs denoted by E3 would not affect the molecular geometry since there are only 2 atoms present.

Yes the bond angles would be 180 because its shape is linear.
