As we learnt in

Lewis structure -

1. pair of bonded electrons is by means of a dash (-) usually called a bond 

2. Lone pairs or non-bonded electrons are represented by dots

3. Electron represent in the last shell of atoms are called valence electrons. 

- wherein

 

 The lewis structure of OF2 molecule is:

We can see that,

Bond pairs = 2

Lone pairs = 8
