Step 1 of 3

Solution 44P

Here, we have to determine what is wrong with each ionic Lewis structure and write the correct structure.

(a) :

        We know, Na(Sodium) has 1 valence electron and O(Oxygen) has 6 valence electron. But oxygen has valency of 2. Hence, one O atom, need 2 Na atoms. Hence above lewis structure is incomplete. The correct lewis structure is :

                        

(b)  :

        Mg(Magnesium)...
