Problem

For neutral molecules, which statements about covalent Lewis structures are true? 

Hydrogen atoms are often the central atom of a Lewis structure. 

Each atom of a Lewis structure must have eight electrons.

For a neutral molecule, the number of electrons in the Lewis structure is the sum of the valence electrons for the atoms.

Electrons of covalent compounds may be shared between atoms.
