Question

The following molecule is best represented as the hybrid of contributing structures. Draw the second important contributing structure in the space provided, including all lone pairs and formal charges. For the structure on the left, use arrows to indicate the movement of electrons to give the structure you drew. Finally, if one of the two contributing structures makes a dominant (major) contribution to the resonance hybrid, draw a circle around the dominant (major) contributor.
