If the question asks you to draw the Lewis structure of a molecule that has resonance, do you just draw one of the structures or do we need to draw all of them?

Unless the question asks you specifically to draw all the resonance structures, I think that one is okay.

I think you should draw the possible resonance structures and put the double sided arrow in between them.

Yeah I think you would need to draw the resonance hybrid, where you draw the two resonance structures connected with a double headed arrow.

Draw the all the resonance structures with a double-headed arrow in between.
