The question says to draw the "most important Lewis structure" for N5+, including all equivalent resonance structures. What does it mean by most important? Also, why is the most important structure the one with a -1 charge on the central atom instead of a 0 charge?
I think that this means the lewis structure with the correct bond angles and the correct number of bonds to lone pairs. Sometimes the central atom will have a formal charge that is non-zero in order to satisfy the other atoms that is bonded to.
