Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 30P

Step 1:

All the elements in the Oxygen Family are Oxygen (O), Sulfur(S), Selenium(Se), Tellurium(Te) and Polonium(Po).

All are nonmetals and having six electrons in its valence shell. So the Lewis structure is as follows,

Step 2:

All the elements of group 16 are tend to gain electrons in order to attain the nearest inert gas configuration.

Step 3 of 3
