We’re being asked to determine a valid Lewis structure for H3COCH3.
In drawing the Lewis structure:
STEP 1: Determine the total number of valence electrons
STEP 2: Determine the arrangement of atoms based on the skeletal formula
STEP 3: Represent bonding pairs using a line.
STEP 4: Distribute the electrons on the terminal atoms. Excess electrons are placed on the central atom.
Write a Lewis structure for each molecule or ion.
