# Chemistry Question: VSEPR model?

So I've been stuck on these 2 problems (with multiple parts of course) for a long time, and I can't figure them out. I would greatly appreciate any help with any of the questions, thanks!
2 Pairs L = Linear
3 Pairs TPL = Trigonal Planar
B = Bent
4 Pairs TET = Tetrahedral
TPY = Trigonal...

2 Pairs L = Linear

3 Pairs TPL = Trigonal Planar

B = Bent

4 Pairs TET = Tetrahedral

TPY = Trigonal Pyramidal

B = Bent

5 Pairs TBP = Trigonal Bipyramidal

S = See-saw

T = T-shaped

L = Linear

6 Pairs O = Octahedral

SPY = Square Pyramidal

SQP = Square Planar

1) What is the label from the table above for the arrangement of both bonding and nonbonding electron domains around the central atom in ClOF4- predicted by the VSEPR/ED theory?

If it helps, the number of lone pair electrons on CLOF4- is 1.

2)What is the label from the table above for the actual structure of ClOF4- predicted by the VSEPR/ED theory?

3)According to valence bond theory, what hybridization of atomic orbitals on the central Cl atom in ClOF4- is necessary to accommodate the shape of ClOF4-?

Update:
1) What is the label from the table above for the arrangement of both bonding and nonbonding electron domains around the central atom in PF4- predicted by the VSEPR/ED theory?
If it helps again, the number of lone pair electrons is 1.
2)What is the label from the table above for the actual structure of PF4-...

Update 2:
ya it is.. but I mean this was chemistry I did back in 10-11th grade in highschool... I'm sad that I can't remember any of it at this point..
