Answer:

A vesper diagram of ozone features formal charge separation and a bent molecule.......

Explanation:

We gots #3xx6=18# valence electrons to distribute......

#O=stackrel(ddot)O^(+)-O^-#, this is a bent molecule with #/_O-O-O# predicted to be approx. #117^@#, slightly below that observed for trigonal planar coordination......because the oxygen lone pair exerts a disproportionate influence.
