Which of these compounds contain elements that do not follow the octet rule? Explain. (Note: All the numbers are superscripts)

A. NF3

B. OF2

C. H2S

D. NI3

My understanding of the octet that it is not satisified in molecules w/ an odd no. of electrons, and in molecules where an atom has less, or more, than a complete octet of valence electrons.
