True or False?
In a structural formula a shared pair of electrons is represented by two dashes.

Is this True?

Fill in the blank
Structural formulas show the arrangement of____________ in molecules.

is it electrons?

A shared pair is represented by two dots. Structural formulae show the arrangement of outside electrons in molecules. I doubt that outside is needed but I always like to put that in.
