Within the study guide there is a question asking to find the Lewis structure of N2O with N as the central atom. During the review session, we answered with three bonds between two Nitrogen and one bond between the central Nitrogen and Oxygen. However, when we get this answer, the Formal Charge of the central Nitrogen is +1. Why is this the best resonance structure if there are alternative structures that provide 0 as the Formal Charge of the central Nitrogen?
