F and Cl are both more electronegative than C, but the bond polarities do not cancel and the molecule is polar. e. (6 pts) A Lewis dot representation of N2 O is shown below. Is this the best possible representation? If not, draw an alternative and give a reason why yours is better. Formal charges are -2, +1, +1. Better representations are -1 +1 0 or 0 +1 -1 page 3 Name: ___________________________ 6. (12 pts) Short answers- be sure to include a brief reason for your answer, to receive credit. a.
