1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Assign formal charges to the possible lewis structures of the following and decide which structure is the most important:

$$OCH^{-}$$

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Most important

I'm wondering how can i come up with all possiblities..

Which is more electronegative: O or N?

Try varying the bond order between the atoms. Also, the question talks about OCH-, but that is presumably a typo. Clarify.

O is more electronegative and O deserves the negative charge. Yup i got that (OCH)-1
