If you are referring to substances with the same electronic configuration, this is because the lone pairs of a substance affect the molecular geometry of substance more than atoms. In other words, if you look at rule 4 in the book, it explains that lone pairs repel the other atoms more than atoms and therefore, the bond angle will be changed (as well as the shape).
