The VSEPR theory assumes that each atom in a molecule will achieve a geometry that minimizes the repulsion between electrons in the valence shell of that atom. ... Repulsion between these pairs of electrons can be minimized by arranging them so that they point in opposite directions.

Carbon Disulfide, CS2 Molecular Geometry & Polarity. Next draw the 3D molecular geometry using VSEPR rules: Decision: The molecular geometry of CS2 is linear with symmetric electron region distribution around the central atom.
