As we learnt in 

Central atom in each being sp hybridised shows linear shape.

F-Xe-F                

As we discussed in the concept

Shape of molecules -

-

 

Molecule         Shape of molecule 

CF4                     Tetrahedral 

SF4                            See saw shaped 

XeF_{2}                   Linear 

CO2                             Linear 

BF3                                 Triangular planer

PCl_{3}                       Pyramidal 

PF5                                 Triangular bipyramidal

IF_{5}                         Square pyramidal
