Draw all significant resonance structures of each compound below. Include the necessary curve arrows to generate each resonance structure and any formal charges. If no valid resonance structures can be generated, write NONE next to the structure.
Sometimes, more than one lewis structures can be made for describing the same compound. Those lewis structures can be converted from one to another by delocalization of electrons. This phenomenon of delocalization of electrons is called resonance, and the structures are called resonance structures.
Answer and Explanation:
There are no valid resonance structures for compound (B), as it doesn't go into resonance.
