Science....HURRY! Please respond ASAP!!!!

0=X=0
The model above shows how an unidentified element, X, forms covalent bonds with oxygen. In which group on the periodic table does Element X most likely belong?

A. Group 6
B. Group 12
C. Group 14
D. Group 18

I think it is either C or D.

So X must be a four-valent atom. Where is that on the periodic table. www.webelements.com
