Expert Answer
Dear Student,
 

Atomic number of nitrogen is 7 (E.C. = 2,5) and oxygen is 8 (E.C. = 2,6).

The nearest noble gas is Neon with atomic number 10 (E.C. = 2,8)

Thus,

To attain the stable configuration of the nearest noble gas, nitrogen needs three electrons.
Each N atom contributes three electrons and forms three shared pair of electrons between them.

Similarly, to attain the stable configuration of the nearest noble gas, oxygen needs two electrons, hence it forms double bond.
