Expert Answer

Step 1

Lewis structure represents the number of valance electrons around an individual atom in a molecule or a compound. Each atom in Lewis structure follows the octet rule.

In Lewis electron dot symbol, nucleus and inner electrons are represented by an element symbol and valance electrons are represented by dots.

Step 2

Consider another good ligand is carbon monoxide (CO). The electron pairs on...
