    Answer:
    The carbon tetrachloride molecule, CClu2084, has the shape of a Tetrahedron.

    Explanation:
    The central atom in CClu2084 is carbon. Carbon is bonded to four Chlorine atoms through single bonds. According to VSEPR theory, if a central atom has four bonded electron pairs and zero lone pair of electrons it will attain tetrahedral shape. This shape is of the minimum energy. The bond angles between Cl-C-Cl is almost equal to 109u00b0. The structure of CClu2084 is as follow,
