Homework Help: Resonance Structures for a Certain Molecule

  1. Aug 24, 2014 #1
    Here attached is a question from my exam. My TA removed 1 point out of 7 for a reason. Can anyone decipher for what? There's the writing in red but it is illegible to me. I don't understand to what he refers by 8 and 6 t or +, or whatever he wrote.


    Or can anyone write a full answer?

    I'm sorry you are not finding help at the moment. Is there any additional information you can share with us?

    My guess on what he wrote is "bad all have fc (formal charge)". I hate it when the markers writing is illegible.

    My reading is "but all have 8t". I don't know what t is but he has written 6t on some structures and 8t on others. :confused:
