Use Lewis structures and the VSEPR model to give the VSEPR formula for each of the following species and predict its shape: (a) sulfur tetrachloride; (b) iodine trichloride; (c) IF4 -1; (d) xenon trioxide.

a) AX4E
- seesaw

b) AX3E2
- T-shaped

c) AX4E2
- square planar

d) AX3E
- trigonal pyramidal

How would you determine the bond angles of iodine trichloride? I understand the shape, but not the angles.
