Question

Two possible resonance structures for OCl2 are shown below.

Which of the following is true?

a. Neither structure is more accurate because they both have the same number of electrons

b. Structure B is more accurate because it has more formal charge on the atoms

c. The resonance structures are in equilibrium, rapidly switching back and forth

d. Structure A is more accurate because the forma charge is 0 on each atom.
