What is the shape of the IO2F2- and what is the lewis structure ?

The shape IO2F2- is a seesaw since its AX4E and I included a link to a picture of the lewis structure as well.

To solve this,, just count the amount of electrons - 34 if you add the negative charge - then continue doing a lewis structure like normal, then go down the charge and find which example fits the model with the same number regions of electron densities.
