Expert Answer

Step 1

The molecular structure is a 3-dimensional representation of bond pairs around the central atom. It is also known as molecular geometry.

Electron geometry is a 3-dimensional representation of bond pairs and lone pair around the central atom.

Step 2

Te is an element of group 16 that means the number of valence electrons in Te is 6. Since, the given molecule is TeI2 therefore, there will be 2 bond pair with Iodine (I) and 2 lone pairs on the central atom Te.

Thus, the electronic geometry of TeI2 is tetrahedral whereas the molecular geometry of the compound TeI2 is bent.

Step 3

The molecular geometry of the compound TeI2 ...

Te I 2+2 arrangement therefore, tetrahedral geometry but due to 2 lone pairs molecular geometry is Bent
