    first off do you know how to draw the lewis structure? You need to look at the number of valence electrons, beryllium has 2 valence electrons, and chlorine has 7, |dw:1442608897751:dw|

    I remember this a little, In order for an atom to bind to another it must have 8 electrons in it's outer shell/ octet so chlorine is a (can't remember the name) atom and will bind with an atom that has one making that atom a (Can't remember the name) atom

    @WhatEven Lone pair means a pair of electrons that does not participate in bonding for example. in NH3 ammonia. |dw:1442611152163:dw| Lone pairs cause the angles to become smaller between atoms and change the shape. |dw:1442611209066:dw| Because Beryllium does not have any lone pairs, the bond angle is 180 say if it did. |dw:1442611259250:dw|

    for example oxygen in this formula is electron deficient. Assuming H had more than 1 valence electron we would have made use of double bonds to get Oxygen in octet or 8
