an element (we will call it X) got a cofiguration of 1##s^2##2##s^2##2##p^6##3##s^2##s##p^3## what molecule is moste likely to happend between this element and Mg?
1.MgX
2.##Mg_2##X
3.Mg##X_2##
4.##Mg_3## ##X_2##

how do i do it?with lewis structure?just check what structure makes the most sense? or is there another way?

What does the octet rule suggest for this atom? How many electrons would you say it “wants?”
