  • When we can draw two (or more) forms of the same molecule that differ only in the placement of their electrons – is called resonance, and the different structures we draw are called resonance forms.
  • Resonance structures are not real, they just show possible structures for a compound.
  • The more resonance forms a molecule has makes the molecule more stable.
Any number of resonance hybrid can be proposed
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
