For part b, we are asked to draw the Lewis structure of CH3OH. I drew it differently (see image below) from the book, but I still got a formal charge of 0 for each atom. Is the way I drew it still right or no?

I think it's right ( it might just be a matter of structure but I don't think we've learned about that yet)

Also, would this be resonance?

That is correct, it would just be a resonance structure of ch3oh
