(5 points each, 10 points total) Below a Lewis structure is provided along with the total number of Lewis structures which will contribute to the resonance hybrid (including the one provided). Provide Lewis structures for the other contributors and indicate which one (or ones) will contribute most importantly. a.

(8 points each, 16 points total) For each of the following, first provide a full Lewis structure. Then indicate on the Lewis structure the hybridization of each atom (except hydrogen). Then specify what atomic orbitals overlap to give each bond and indicate what atomic orbital each lone pair occupies. Finally provide a perspective drawing showing the geometry of the molecule (you dont need to show the geometry of the methyl groups; they are understood to be tetrahedral). a.
