Step 1

Since we are entitled to answer upto 3 sub-parts here we are answering subparts a,b and c . Please resubmit the question to get answer of remaining subparts.

Part a.

Calculation for number of valence electrons of HCO3- ion.

Number of valence electrons of H atom = 1

Number of valence electrons of C atom = 4

Number of valence electrons of O atom = 6

Total number of valence electrons HCO3- ion = (No. of H atoms * valence electrons of H atoms) + (No. of C atoms * valence electrons of C atoms) + (No. of O atoms * valence electrons of O atoms) + number of negative charge

Total number of valence electrons HCO3- ion = 1*1+1*4+3*6+1

Total number of valence electrons HCO3- ion = 24 electrons

 Lewis Structure:

Part b.

i) Central carbon atom is bonded with two oxygen atoms by single bond, one oxygen atom by double bond and there is no lone pair on the central carbon atom so molecular geometry of HCO3- ...
