Which statement explains how the octet rule influences the way covalent bonds are modeled?

The octet rule states atoms are least stable with a full valence shell. Covalently bonded atoms following this rule are each shown with eight valence electrons. Electrons that are shared between atoms are shown as bonds, while unshared electrons are shown as lone pairs.
