2B 19

2B.20 Using only Lewis structures that obey the octet rule, draw
the Lewis structures and determine the formal charge on each
atom in (a) SO 2 ; (b) SO 3 ; (c) SO 3 -2 .

What does it mean by obey the octet rule? Does it mean that the central atom must have only an octet of valence electrons?

It means each atom has to have an octet.

Doesn't the octet rule mean that there must be 8 valence electrons on each element?

yes but make sure you also take a look at the octet exceptions
