How can I tell whether C2+ has a stronger bond than C2- by using the MO diagrams ?

after getting the MO diagram, you can calculate the bond order, higher bond order means it is stronger

What is the difference between electron arrangement & molecular shape?

This question is not related.
The answer is:
electron arrangement includes lone pairs and bonding pairs
molecular shape includes only the position of the atoms
