Solution

The correct option is A a - (iii); b - (i); c - (iv); d - (ii)
Halogens have 7 electrons in their last shell.
XX would have a linear structure
XX3 would have a T shape structure and NOT triangular planar due to the lone pair of electrons (2 pairs)
XX5 would have one lone pair and would be square pyramidal (lone pair on axial plane).
XX7 would have no lone pairs and would be pentagonal bypiramidal.
