How would the lone pairs in the molecules below perturb the structure from its ideal geometry?

Because lone pairs are larger than bonding pairs, lone pairs next to each other take up more space in the molecular structure than single lone pairs, and single lone pairs take up more space than bonded pairs. How would the lone pairs in the molecules below perturb the structure from its ideal geometry? Draw the structures and indicate what is (are) the ideal bond angle(s), and what do you predict are the actual bond angle(s)? OF2, SCL2, PF3

    No, thank you - not today, sweetie.

    I gave up helping people pass off other's work as their own.
