Canonical Structures and Resonance

Lewis / Kekulé structures A through D are constitutional isomers having the molecular formula CN2H2. The remaining structures include canonical formulas which should be incorporated in a resonance description of these four compounds. There is also at least one formula that represents a fifth constitutional isomer of CN2H2.
