We have to complete the given Lewis structure of ortho-dichlorobenzene using bonds and lone pairs.
The Lewis structure of a molecular can be drawn/completed using these steps:
Step 1: Determine the central atom in the molecule.
Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.
Ortho-dichlorobenzene, C6H4Cl2, is obtained when two of the adjacent hydrogen atoms in benzene are replaced with Cl atoms. A skeleton of the molecule is shown here.
Complete a Lewis structure for the molecule using bonds and electron pairs as needed.
