1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Why does the following structure show resonance? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution The question was given by my teacher and he said that yes it will show resonance. But i still can't able to make it out why would it show resonance? The point is Nitrogen is more electronegative than Carbon and therefore should not show resonance but yet it does. It passes one of its electron from the lone pair to the carbon and makes a covalent bond. I don't agree with this because nitrogen is more electronegative and should avoid giving its electron to the carbon. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
