Question

# Most stable lewis structure of ${N_2}O$ is:A: B: C: D:

In this question, we have to find the most stable structure of ${N_2}O$. The structure will be stable if there will be a negative charge on more electronegative elements. Among nitrogen and oxygen, oxygen is more electronegative than nitrogen so the structure in which there will be a negative charge on nitrogen will be most stable. Among given options option D is the only option in which there is a negative charge on oxygen (usually it makes two bonds but there is only one bond) and a positive charge on the central nitrogen atom (usually nitrogen forms three bonds but central nitrogen has four bonds one with oxygen and three with another nitrogen atom). charges on the structure will look like:
Additional information: ${N_2}O$ is nitrogen dioxide. It is one of the oxides of nitrogen. It is an intermediate formed during the synthesis of nitric acid. It is widely used in the production of fertilizers. ${N_2}O$is among primary pollutants. Pollutants are the substances which cause pollution.
