Can someone list all of the different electron configuration shapes we've covered in class?

In class we've done:
-trigonal planar
-tetrahedral
-trigonal bipyramidal
-octahedral
-trigonal pyramidal
-seesaw
-square planar
-linear

(based on my notes)

Also in discussion my TA mentioned that when they ask for the geometry of the molecule, they want you to include the lone pairs, but if they ask for the molecular structure, they want you to not include the lone pairs and just describe what would be observed. So just beware that questions could ask for two different things.

What do you mean by "include lone pairs"?
