The second column lists the number of atom pairs that satisfy the distance
requirement but do not satisfy the angle requirement and therefore are not
hydrogen bonds. The two columns are mutually exclusive. The sum of these two
columns would be the total number of pairs that are within hydrogen-bonding
distance, but the first column indicates those that are actually involved in
hydrogen bonds (because of the angle), and the second column indicates those
that are not involved in hydrogen bonds.
