Explain the basis of the following statements: A complex in which three oxalate (C2O42-) ligands are present may have an octahedral coordination geometry

Because oxalate is a bidentate ligand.
Chemists do it periodically on table.

That makes sense.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

But only "may have". Attached structure of TiO(Ox)3 (3-) anion. What about its cordination geometry?
