Mulitple choice:

why is it uncommon to draw lewis diagrams for ionic compounds?

A.) Lewis diagrams can only illustrate covalent bonding
B.) ionic compounds cannot be represented by Lewis diagrams
C.) ionic compounds involve electron transfer not electron sharing
d.) formulas for ionic compounds are predictable and understandable based on ion charges

Please help me

  1. It's definitely not A or B.

    Ionic compounds share electrons, I keep thinking of NaCl and KBr which are both ionic compounds.

    I've drawn both in lewis dot structures multiple times, so A is out, as well as B. C is out because ionic compounds share electrons. so I'm thinking the answer is D.
