Indicate the noble gas that has the same Lewis structure as each ion.
Step 1 of 3
Here, we are going to write the Lewis structure for each ion.
The electronic configuration of Br is [Ar] 3d104s24p5
Br + e- -------> Br-
The electronic configuration of Br- is [Ar] 3d104s24p6 or [Kr]
The Lewis structure for Br- is same as Kr.
Krypton (Kr) has same Lewis structure as Br- ion.
The electronic configuration of S is [He] 2s²2p⁴
O +2e- -------> O2-
The electronic configuration of S2- is [He] 2s² 2p6 or [Ne]
The Lewis structure for O2- is same as Ne .
