tell me name of those type of molecules in which the lone pairs are at 90 angle.

Di-bromodimethylselenium (with 4 bonding pairs, and 1 lone pair), the parent shape is therefore trigonal-bipyramidal. Notice that the lone pair occupies the equatorial site in the trigonal-bipyramidal array. In the equatorial position the lone pair is repelled by two bonding pairs at 90 degrees, whereas in the axial position it would be repelled by 3 bonding pairs at 90 degrees.
