7th ed) I get how the final Lewis structure drawn in 6A.15 for CLO2- is the most stable resonance structure. However, the answer does not have the lowest energy resonance structure for SO2 on the reactants side. Is this because they wanted to match the resonance with the final structure? And would we be marked down for putting the lowest energy structure for SO2 (two double bonds) in a problem like this?

I am also confused about this. If anyone knows why the answer for So2 lewis isnt the one with 2 double bonds on oxygen please explain the reason!
