        Statement                               Shape                                    Example

(a) Bond pair has > 75%                                                 HF

p-character

(b) Reduction in axial bond                                     SF4

is more than that of in 

equatorial bond angle

(c) Two axial d-orbitals and                                       XeF5-

one non-axial d-orbitals are

used in hybridization

(d) Two p-orbitals are used                                               SnCl2

in hybridization
