    Explanation:

    Two covalent bonds form between the two oxygen atoms because oxygen requires two shared electrons to fill its outermost shell. Nitrogen atoms will form three covalent bonds (also called triple covalent) between two atoms of nitrogen because each nitrogen atom needs three electrons to fill its outermost shell.

    Plz mark me as the Brainleist.. (not forcing u.. if u like the answer) amd don’t forget to tell me what is “Lewis dot diagrams “??
