If our molecule does not have any lone pairs when writing the notation do we write E0 or just not write E at all?

There would be no E term in the notation.

You don’t need to write E0, you can just not write it.

I think the notation would just not include E at all. It could look something like AX5

Since there's no lone pairs, I don't think it's necessary to include the E.

You do not need to write the E0 in that situation.
