Please explain me this part of VSEPR in little detail- "A multiple bond is treated as if it is a single e- pair and the 2 or 3 e- pairs of a multiple bond are treated as a single super pair."

While determining the geometry of molecule, the two electron pairs of a double bond and three electron pairs of a triple bond, behave like a single bond. The reason is that, they tend to occupy the same region between the two nuclei like a single bond.
