(b)Only three electron pairs are present in C1H3, and so it is trigonal planar.(c)As in part (b), there are three electron pairs. When these electron pairs are arranged in a plane,the atoms in ••CH2are not collinear. The atoms of this species are arranged in a bent structureaccording to VSEPR considerations.1.43The structures, written in a form that indicates hydrogens and unshared electrons, are as shown. Re-member: A neutral carbon has four bonds, a neutral nitrogen has three bonds plus one unshared elec-tron pair, and a neutral oxygen has two bonds plus two unshared electron pairs. Halogen substituents
