(d)Octets of electrons at all the carbon atoms can be produced by moving the electrons towardthe site of positive charge.(e)As in part (d), move the electron pairs toward the carbon atom that has only 6 electrons.(f)The negative charge can be placed on the most electronegative atom (oxygen) in this moleculeby moving electrons as indicated.(g)Octets of electrons are present around both carbon and oxygen if an oxygen unshared electronpair is moved toward the positively charged carbon to give an additional covalent bond.(h)This exercise is similar to part (g); move electrons from oxygen to carbon so as to produce anadditional bond and satisfy the octet rule for both carbon and oxygen.(i)By moving electrons from the site of negative charge toward the positive charge, a structurethat has no charge separation is generated.1.35(a)Sulfur is in the same group of the periodic table as oxygen (group VI A) and, like oxygen, has
