State whether the following oxides are acids or bases or amphoteric.
For these, what is the best way to determine what they are by drawing the Lewis structure and then seeing if they want to gain or lose electrons?

I think you find out whether it is an acidic, basic, or amphoteric oxide by looking at the periodic table as illustrated in the diagram below. Hope this helps!
