Concept:

Problem: Label each carbon atom with its optimum C-C-C bond angle. Note: If one of more bond angles are incorrectly placed, a single red X will appear on the top left

FREE Expert Solution

The groups attached to the carbon will hint us with the corresponding geometry and bond angle. 

  • 2 groups attached → linear → 180°
  • 3 groups attached → trigonal planar → 120°
  • 4 groups attached  → tetrahedral → 109.5°
