the chlorine atom in the molecule CIF3 has 5 valence electron pairs , out of which 3 are bonding pairs and 2 are loan pairs , so, the molecule has a trigonal bipyramidal electron pair geometry and T – shaped molecular geometry due to lp-lp and lp-bp repulsion . 
the shape of SOF4 is dstorted trigonal bipyramidal with oxygen found at the equator ., 
HOPE IT CLEARS YOUR DOUBT 
ALL THE BEST ..
