Which of the following is true of Valence Bond theory and Molecular Orbital theory?

Neither Valence Bond theory nor Molecular Orbital theory produces hybridized geometries. 

Both Valence Bond theory and Molecular Orbital theory produce hybridized geometries through anti bonding and bonding orbitals. 

The Valence Bond theory is the mathematical combination of atomic orbitals to produce anti bonding and bonding orbitals while the Molecular Orbital theory states that covalent bonds are formed from atomic orbital overlap. 

The Valence Bond Theory states that covalent bonds are the result of electron repulsion while the Molecular Orbital theory states that covalent bonds form as a result of atomic overlap.  

The Valence Bond theory states that covalent bonds are formed from atomic orbital overlap while the Molecular Orbital theory is the mathematical combination of atomic orbitals to produce anti bonding and bonding orbitals.
