Choose the true statements regarding the charge-minimized Lewis structure(s) of the BrO2- ion. (selet all that apply)

a. There is only one charge-minimized structure for this ion.
b. There are two charge-minimized resonance structures for this ion.
c. The formal charge on the central Br atom is -1
d. The formal charge on the central Br atom is +1
e. The formal charge on the central Br atom is 0

I think b and e are true ... is this right?
