  1. I can't draw these on the computer or these boards.
    Mg: is the neutral Mg atom.
    :S: is the neutral S atom.

    Now move the two electrons on Mg to the bottom of S. That leaves Mg with no electrons and a 2+ charge and it leaves S with 8 electrons and a 2- charge.
    Ba and I are done the same way except the formula is BaI2 so 1 electron from Ba is transferred to one of the I atoms and the other electron from Ba is transferred to the other I atom. Ba then carries a 2+ charge and each I carries a -1 charge.
