Which of the following is the correct representation of electron dot structure of nitrogen?
A.

B.

C.

D.

Answer :

An electron dot structure represents the valence electrons as dots placed around the chemical symbol. Electrons are placed up to two on each side of the symbol for a maximum of eight, which is the number of electrons in a filled s and p shell.


Nitrogen has 5 valence electrons. When we draw the Lewis structure for Nitrogen we draw 5 ‘dots’ or valence electrons around the element symbol (N).
