Distribution of the intrinsic axial ratios B/A and C/A of the bulge of the simulated lenticular remnant gS0dE0o100 seen at different inclinations. The contours encompass the 68.3% of the realizations of (B/A,C/A) consistent with the geometric parameters of bulge and disk measured from our photometric decomposition of the mock images of the simulated lenticular remnant at θ = 0° (black dashed line), 30° (blue), 45° (red), 60° (green), and 180° (black dotted line). The stars correspond to the most probable values of B/A and C/A for the different galaxy inclinations and are color coded as their corresponding contours. The white, light gray, gray, and dark gray regions mark the regimes of triaxial, prolate, oblate, and spherical bulges, respectively.
