Question

Whether hydronium is having lone pair or shared pair?


Solution



When H+ attacks the water molecule, the central oxygen of water donates one lone pair to H+ to form a covalent bond with it so, in hydronium ion, the central oxygen has 3 hydrogens covalently bonded and there is a lone pair on the oxygen.
