In our discussion, we were trying to clarify what the wording of the problem will be when it's asking for the shape, looking at lone pairs or not. To clarify, if a problem asks to state the molecular shape, is this the shape only looking at the atoms, and the geometry of the molecule is the VSEPR name including the lone pairs? For example, molecular shape of a molecule is see-saw, and VSEPR geometrical shape of that molecule is trigonal bipyramidal.
