What's expected for geometrical isomers for these two?
There is more than one geometrical isomer that can be constructed at first.
We will use VSEPR to determine bond angles in a collection of different illustrations some of which are shown here.

In the first, all angles are 120o since the benzene ring, because of resonance, is a perfect hexagon with 120o internal angles.

The second, after focussing attention on the N as a central atom has its lone pair compressing the other single bonds closer than their ideal 109.5o (despite having drawn the lone pair as if it were inside the ring -- which it isn't)

Practice in finding structural isomers and finishing Lewis structure pictures.
Expanded octet needed.
Molecular basis of acid strength. The comparison is with selenic acid which is OSe(OH)3. This is a tougher level question for review purposes.
