For question 4.1 there is a linear molecule with an angle of 180 degrees. There question asks if there must be, may be, or cannot be one or more lone pairs of electrons on the central atom. I thought the answer would be there cannot be because it is linear, but the solutions manual said their may be. Why is that? I thought the lone pairs caused a bend in the molecule.
