Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 1

According to VSEPR theory

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 1

The pairs of electrons tend to occupy such positions that place them farthest from each other and minimise repulsions.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 2

In a bonded molecule, the order of repulsion between the bonded and non-bonded electrons is

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 2

Lone pair-lone pair lp - lp repulsions are considered stronger than lone pair-bonding pair lp - bp repulsions, which in turn are considered stronger than bonding pairbonding pair bp - bp repulsions, This is because the lone pair of electrons are attracted towards single nuclei only whereas bond pair electrons are attracted towards two nuclei. Thus the strength of the lone pair-lone pair repulsion is supposed to be more than bond pair-bond pair or bond pair-lone pair repulsion.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 3

The shape of water molecule which should be tetrahedral has a bent or distorted tetrahedral shape with a bond angle 104.5°. What could be the reason for this?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 3

Due to presence of lone pairs, the repulsion is more which changes the bond angle to 104.5°.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 4

Which of the following shapes of SF4 is more stable and why?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 4

In structure (ii), Ip-bp repulsions are minimum.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 5

The most stable shape of ClF3 is shown by

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 5

In (i), the Ip are atequatorial position so there are less Ip - bp repulsions as compared to other positions.

Hence, T-shape is moststable.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 6

In which of the following molecules the central atomdoes not retain any lone pair of electrons?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 6

In all other molecules, N and O retain lone pair
of electrons.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 7

Few examples of the compounds formed by chemical bonding are given below. Mark the incorrect example.

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 7

The correct example is H2O. NH3 is pyramidal and bond angle is 104.50.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 8

Which of the following statements is correct regarding the structure of PCI5?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 8

In PCI5, three axial and two equatorial bonds are present.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 9

Match the molecules given in column I with their shapes given in column II and mark the appropriate choice

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 9

(A) SF−  Octahedral

(B) SiCl− Tetrahedral

(C) AsF− Trigonal bipyramidal

(D) BCl3− Trigonal planar

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 10

What is common between the following molecules

SO3, CO2-3, No-3

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 10


All the moleculeshave trigonal planar structure.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 11

Which molecule is depicted by the given ball and stick models?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 11

BF3 - Trigonal planar with bond angle 120º.
PCI5 - Trigonal bipyramidal with bond angles 120º and 90º.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 12

Which of the following does not show octahedral geometry?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 12

SF4 has trigonal bipyramidal geometry. SF6, IF5, and SiF62- have octahedral geometry.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 13

Given below is the table showing shapes of some molecules having lone pairs of electrons. Fill up the blanks left in it.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 14

The BCI3 is a planar molecule whereas NCI3 is pyramidal, because

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 14

No lone pair ofelectrons is available in BCI3

One lone pair of electrons is available on N atom, occupies a corner in the tetrahedral arrangement. Therefore, NCI3 appears pyramidal in shape.

Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 15

CF4, SF4 and XeF4 contain the following electronicstructure on their central atoms. Which one iscorrect option?

Detailed Solution for Test: The Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (NCERT) - Question 15

CF4−sp3 , tetrahedral but no unpaired electron.

SF4−sp3d, trigonal bipyramidal with one unpaired electron.


XeF4−sp3d2, square planar, two lone pairs of electrons.
