So the question is to draw a generic Louis structure for a molecule form between Adams of Group One and Group 16. So, for our excellent for our generic Louis structure, I'm going to choose sodium, which is in Group one on a periodic table, and oxygen, which is in Group 16 of the periodic table. So, sodium being in the first group is only going to have one valence electron available for bonding and oxygen being in the 16th group, which ends up being six if we're not including the transition transition metals is goingto have six valence electrons, So go ahead and draw those valence electrons. So if you can see if we take a look at oxygen, we have a lone pair to lone pairs, and then we have to un paired electrons, so that means that has two available spaces that can go for bonding. We have sodium only have one valence electron to be shared so we can arrange these items to form quo Baylin bonds by having an additional sodium Adam to bond to the oxygen. So then the oxygen octet rule can be satisfied and sodium being like hydrogen, only needing a second electron to satisfy its architectural so we can go ahead and draw, redraw our oxygen and then include our sodium Adam on the outside of the oxygen and then with a shared electrons, always equals Okla Baylin bond. So then are finished Luis structure for our generic for the generic Louis structure, or molecule, that were forming between an Adam from Group One, A Group 16 can be die sodium oxide, but
