Problem

If additional air is added to the blue balloon so that it gets larger, will the angle between the red and green balloons increase, decrease, or stay the same?

Which of the following aspects of the VSEPR model is illustrated by the earlier question?
(i) The electron-domain geometry for four electron domains is tetrahedral.
(ii) The electron domains for nonbonding pairs are larger than those for bonding pairs.
(iii) The hybridization that corresponds to a trigonal planar electron-domain geometry is sp2.
