Unformatted text preview: Again, it is obvious that the central element is carbon. To get the set number, there are (again) no lone pairs, and four atoms attached to the central atom, giving us a set number of 4. Looking at the table, set number four is tetrahedral, and with no lone pairs, the molecular shape is tetrahedral. Here is how it looks:...
