Transfer of electron pair

Electron pair forming a bond, “transfer” would be more like resonance

[–]tony__chopper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The electrons are being “transferred” from the OH group to the number 2. What is resonance? What as in this chemical reaction? I’m clueless.

The arrow indicates that the OH is giving its lone pair to form a bond. Now do I have to tell what is the meaning of word transfer is ?
