Hi there in this question we have i c l 3, and we have several questions about this molecule. So the first thing we need to do is draw its lewiston structure. To do that, we need to add up the total valence electrons. We have to work with. Iodine is a halogen, so it’s in group 7 a and has 7 valence electrons, each chlorine also being a halogen. Each of those has 7, but there are 3 of them. So 7 plus 21 gives us 28 valence electrons or in other words, since we use dots to represent valence, electrons or completed structure needs 28 dots. The iodine is going to be in the center and it’s going to be surrounded by the 3 chlorine’s. We know we need to have at least a single bond holding each chlorine to the iodine, and then we can start completing a tetes, we’ll start with our atoms on the outside here and give them each an octet of 8 electrons that uses up 24 of our Total electrons, but we have 28 point so the left over dots. If we have extra dots, they always go on the central atom. So, looking at the iodine here, that’s our central atom. We see that the iodine has 3 atoms bonded and 2 lone pairs, giving us a total of 5 electron domains. Any time we have 5 electron domains or electron groups. If you will, since it looks like this question, is calling them groups, the electron group geometry is going to be the trigonal by parametalokay. So that is our first answer. Trigonal by parameter would be the electron group geometry. Let’S take a second and see what that would look like, so it means we have 1 or we have our central atom and we have 3 electron groups around the center. So there’s a group coming out back here in center center back and then we…
