Predict the shapes and estimate the bond angles of (a) the thiosulfate ion, S2O322; (b) (CH3)2Be; (c) BH22; (d) SnCl2.

The first would be tetrahedral with two of the oxygens on one S and the other one on the other S. (b) There would be two tetrahedral shapes about the carbons with the Be in between the Carbons. (c) the Hydrogens would be 120 degrees away from each other because of the lone electron forming a bent shape. (d) the three would form a bent shape because of the lone pair on Sn.
