A molecule with 3 bond pairs and 0 lone pairs has equal repulsion by all three bond pairs, causing a trigonal planar shape, with a bond angle of 120 degrees, eg:


A molecule with 4 bond pairs and 2 lone pairs has equal repulsion from the two lone pairs of electrons, causing a square planar shape with a bond angle of90 degrees, eg:
