Making lewis structure of ClO2?

I'd assume something like this would be simple but MML keeps saying it's wrong??

O have 3 bond pairs on each of the outer O's and 1 bond pair + 1 radical on the Cl in the center..

The exact phrasing of the question..

Draw the molecule by placing atoms on the grid and connecting them with bonds. Include all lone pairs of electrons and nonbonding electrons.

O -- Cl -- O

    Clo2 Lewis Structure

  • 4 years ago

    Just did it on mastering Chemistry the answer is 2 pairs lone electrons on O, double bonded to Cl, Cl has one lone pair plus one lone electron, double bonded to the second O, which has 2 pairs of lone electrons.
