Answer:

#[:N-=O:]^+#

Explanation:

Maximum number of valence electrons #= 8 + 8 = 16 \ e^-#

Available electrons #= 5 + 6 -1 = 10 \ e^-#

Shared electrons # = " Maximum " - " Available "#

# " "= " "16\ e^(-) " "- " "10 \ e^(-) = 6\ e^- #

Number of bonds #=( " Shared " e^-) / 2 = 6/2 =3 \ "bonds"#

Electrons to be distributed # = " Available " - " Shared"#

#" " = " " 10 \ e^-" " - " "6 \ e^-#

#" " = " " 4\ e^-" #

#" " [:N-=O:]^+#
