A hydrogen bond is any bond between H and F, O, or N. You can count the hydrogen bonding sites for these.

Hydrogen bonds are a bond between hydrogen and either O,F,N. Potential hydrogen bonding sites are a lone pair on an O,F,N atom binded to an H, or H binded to O,F,N.

You can also look at the number of lone pairs on N,O or F atoms

Lone pairs on O, F, or N can form hydrogen bonds with a H that is connected to an O, F, or N.

A hydrogen bond is between a H and an N, O, and F. Potential bonding sites are on the lone pairs of N, O, and F.
