ed to the S and one oxygen being double bonded to it with the S still having 1 lone pair and the H would be paired with one of the single bonded oxygens. I thought that it would be the last one that i mentioned but our exam review shows that it is the first answer that I stated and I dont know why
I need to know exactly how the question was formulated. See this picture attached though.
Hey there Kris and Nika!
Nika, you are correct, the best structure of HSO3- would be the one that has less formal charges, and the one that has a negative charge on a more electronegative element, O, instead of S. Let us know if you have other questions Kris!
