Answer ( Expert Verified )

A valid Lewis structure of IF3 cannot be drawn without violating the octet rule.

Answer: IF3 (Iodine Trifluoride)

This is because, I (Iodine) and F (Fluorine) both have odd number of valence electrons (7) which also means that there are too many valence electrons in the valence shell.
