  1. I don't think it will do you any good for me to give you the answers. If you have a specific problem about how to do them try posting that question. You really need to learn to do these yourself.
    For starters, Cl has an octet in ClO3^-.
    I believe S has an octet in SO2 but check me out on both of those.
