Main Question or Discussion Point
The reaction is shown in the image attached. So the lone pair over O goes into making a bond with C. But why does it create a + over O? A + means the number of protons are one more than electrons, or deficiency of 1 electron. But if the lone pair is used up for making a bond, shouldn't it result into a 2+ charge and not just a single +?
