Would you make the same prediction for the molecular structure for each case using the Lewis structure obtained in Exercise 99 as compared with the one obtained in Exercise 100?

Problem

Exercise 99:

Write Lewis structures that obey the octet rule for the following species. Assign the formal charge for each central atom.

a. POCl3                            e. SO   2Cl2
b. SO42-                             f. XeO   4
c. ClO4-                             g. ClO   3-
d. PO43-                            h. NO   43-

Exercise 100:

Write Lewis structures for the species in Exercise 99 that involve minimum formal charges.

Refer back to the formal charge Exercises 99 and 100 from Chapter 3. Would you make the same prediction for the molecular structure for each case using the Lewis structure obtained in Exercise 99 as compared with the one obtained in Exercise 100?
