Expert Answer

Step 1

The angle between two bonded electron pairs or two bonds in a compound is termed as bond angle.

  1. O−S−O  angle of SO2=120.

SO2 is a molecule in which central atom is Sulphur having 6 valence electrons and oxygen is side atom. Thus, the geometry of the molecule will be trigonal planar, but shape will be bent due to presence of lone pair on oxygen atom and will have a bond angle less than 120.

  1. O−S−O angle of SO3=120.

SO3 is a molecule in which central atom is Sulphur having 6 valence electrons and oxygen is side atom. Thus, the geometry and shape of the molecule will be trigonal planar and will have a bond angle 120.

Step 2
  1. Cl−S−Cl angle of SCl2=103.

SCl2 is a molecule in which central atom is Sulphur having 6 valence electrons and chlorine is side atom. Thus, the geometry of the molecule will be bent and will have a bond angle 103.

  1. O−C−O angle of CO2=180.

CO2 is a molecule in which central atom is carbon having 4 valence electrons and oxygen is side atom. Thus, the geometry of the molecule will be linear and will have a bond angle 180.

  1. Cl−S−O angle of SOCl2=107.4.

SOCl2 is a molecule in which central atom is Sulphur having 6 valence electrons and two chlorine, one oxygen is side atom. Thus, the geometry of the molecule will be trigonal pyrimidal and will have a bond angle 107.4.

Step 3
  1. H−C−H angle of CH4=109.5◦.

CH4 is a molecule in which central atom is carbon having 4 valence electrons and hydrogen is side atom. T...
