Can you verify the electron and molecular geometry of H20?

You mean molecular shape? VSEPR is plenty good enough

The electron arrangement of H20 would be tetrahedral, but the molecular shape would be bent/angular.

The electron geometry of H2O is tetrahedral because of the two sets of lone pairs. Therefore, its molecular geometry is bent (AX2E2).
