Hi! Homework problem 3.57b from the 6th edition asks for the Lewis structure of hydrogen sulfite ion and I got a different answer than the one on the answer key. Can someone explain how they got the H attached to O and not S (the central atom)? I got a tetrahedral shape, with S as the central atom and the three O and H attached to S through single bonds. Then I have all three O with 6 lone pairs. Why can this not be one of the Lewis structure for hydrogen sulfite ion? Thank you!
