A

This molecule has the formula ${ C }_{ 5 }{ H }_{ 7 }NO$ and three atoms are ${ sp }^{ 3 }$ hybridized. Each of the ${ sp }^{ 3 }$ hybridized atoms has the same molecular geometry but differ in their electron pair geometry. The N-C-C bond angle is approximately 120${ }^{ \circ }$.

B

Three atoms, two of the carbon atoms and the oxygen atom, have bent molecular geometry. The nitrogen atom is ${sp}^{3}$ hybridized. The C-O-C bond angle is a little less than 109${ }^{ \circ }$. The carbon atom at the far right is attached to one other carbon atom and one hydrogen atom.

C

This molecule has two atoms that have linear molecular geometry, three atoms with trigonal planar molecular geometry, three atoms that are ${ sp }^{ 2 }$ hybridized and one atom with bent electron pair geometry. This molecule has the formula ${ C }_{ 5 }{ H }_{ 6 }NO$.

D

This molecule has two atoms that have linear electron pair geometry, one atom with bent molecular geometry, three atoms that are ${ sp }^{ 3 }$ hybridized and two atoms with trigonal planar molecular geometry. This molecule has the formula ${ C }_{ 5 }{ H }_{ 7 }NO$.
