    Lewis Structure is drawn in following steps,

    1) Calculate Number of Valence Electrons:

    # of Valence electrons in Mg = 2
    # of Valence electrons in I = 7
    # of Valence electrons in I = 7
    ———
    Total Valence electrons = 16

    2) Draw Mg as a central atom surround it by two atoms of Iodine.

    3) Connect each Iodine atom to Mg, and subtract two electrons per bond. In this case we will subtract 4 electrons from total valence electrons. i.e.

    Total Valence electrons 16
    – Four electrons – 4
    ———-
    12

    4) Now start adding the remaining 12 electrons on more electronegative atoms i.e. Iodine.

    The final lewis structure formed is as follow,
