    VSEPR theory

    A/C are wrong for the first one, B is grammatically incorrect (no pairs of oxygen in water) so I'd go with D even though B is similar if you replace oxygen with electrons.

    The 2nd one is pairs of valence electrons.

    Why is the first question so poorly worded? water is bent because it has sp3 hybridization or because it has 4 bonds/electron pairs and they get as far away as possible.

    because of the fact examining is loose in u.s. those are already being examined by potential of scientists and all of us understand how petrified of scientists the non secular folken are? after an consumer-friendly introductory type even the main mystical shrouded faith bites the airborne dirt and dust whilst placed next to clinical theories that are according to agonizing fact and repeated testing........ faith is made up interior the minds of the believers to extra wholesome the 2d handy which many times potential twisting it right into a good concern for the guy in spite of situations. your question mentions technological know-how so be arranged for some chrisatan to delete and checklist it......
