Unformatted text preview: lone pairs, and formal charges. (5 pts) e) With a strong enough acid, MVE can be protonated to form a cation with 7 H's in its molecular formula. Provide TWO different possible structures for the protonated form of MVE - make sure they are the two MOST REASONABLE protonated forms possible, and be sure to show all atoms, bonds, lone pairs, and formal charges.
