No outer shell electrons in the molecule are depicted Choice D

Which figure does not depict outer shell electrons

Answer

d.

Explanation

As we know the atomic no of chlorine is 17

Electronic configuration will be 2, 8, 7. That means 7 electrons will be there in the outer most shell of the atom. In figure 4 one Cl satisfies the no of electrons whereas the other has only one left in the outer most shell.
