Problem: Acyl transfer (nucleophilic substitution at carbonyl) reactions proceed in two stages via a "tetrahedral intermediate." Draw the tetrahedral intermediate as it is first formed in the following reaction. You do not have to consider stereochemistry. Include all valence lone pairs in your answer. Do not include counter-ions, e.g., Na+, I-, in your answer.
