should we know how to draw a resonance hybrid??

Since all that changes is the placement of electrons between resonance structures, I think it would be a good thing to keep in mind, but it wouldn't be too complicated to figure out on a test as long as you know it exists/what it means.

Lavelle does not expect us to draw the hybrid I think, because he didn't show it in class. So it's preferred that you draw all of the different resonance structures.

I don't think it's necessary to know to draw a hybrid, but we are expected know the concept.

The hybrid I believe is just one structure with a dotted line for example showing how the electron can either act as a lone pair or be used to form a double bond. I would rather focus on resonance structure and focus where double bonds can be made and favorable formal charges.

i dont think so, I think we only need to say that the actual structure is a mixture of the resonance structures and be able to draw the resonance structures.

I think we have to know how to draw and name the different orbitals in the same layout as the "building up" method.
