Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the dot structures, you just draw the bonds and show the electrons; I will do water because it is really easy  the oxygen atom has 6 valance electrons, so it will make two bonds and have 4 electrons left over (if you need help with the math on how to decide how many electrons there are and how many bonds, ask). Anyway, here is what water will look like: dw:1327897002472:dw
