An H3O+ ion would be triangular pyramidal, with a single lone pair repelling the three H atoms more than they repel each other, causing a bond angle of 107 degrees. Can you think of any other molecule like that? Think about other analogous molecules in the same period.

Well this rather depends on how precise we are talking about when we say 'the same shape'

Think about replacing oxygen nucleus by nuclei of oxygen neighbors from the periodic table.

And don't ignore JMaydom's comment.
