    Octet Rule is violated when these three scenarios: When there are an odd number of valence electrons When there are too few valence electrons When there are too many valence electrons

    Nitrogen has 7 electrons, Oxygen has 16, we'll use the valence electrons in this diagram |dw:1434303012780:dw|

    Nitrogen has 5 valence electrons here, which is an odd number and therefore its incomplete octet

    Is the O complete but the N incomplete?
