    Explanation:

    Electron dot structures or Lewis dot formula – It defines the nature of bond and position of atoms of the molecule which are connected in the molecule.

    Electron dot structures of carbon dioxide

    The carbon is the central atom of this molecule.

    Oxygen atom contains 6 valence electrons which form 2 lone pairs. Since it is bonded to only one carbon atom, it must form a double bond.

    Carbon atom contains four valence electrons, resulting in zero lone pairs. Therefore, it is doubly bonded to each oxygen atom.
