What are the VSEPR formulas (e.g. AX2E) for the two different types of molecules that are T-Shaped?

AX3E2 is the t-shaped molecule. AX4E is the see saw shape.

They have 90 and 180 degrees angles

AX3E2 is the only formula that leads to T-shaped as trigonal bipyramidal is the only shape that has those flat 90-degree equatorial bonds.

AX2E is bent v shaped and its bond angles are 120 each, separated symmetrically.

The two different molecules that are Tshaped are AX3E2 and AX3E3. The bond angles for T shape are less than 90 degrees for both.
