Square planar

#### Explanation:

The electron geometry is octahedral, while the molecular geometry is square planar, Xenon has 6 bonding electron pairs, therefore the electron geometry of octahedral, but two of the pairs of electrons on the central atom are unbonded, or lone pairs therefore the molecular geometry is square planar.
