When drawing the tetrahedral structure do we have to draw the black triangle or a dashed triangle to represent hydrogen bonds to a central atom for example as showed in some of the solutions in the solutions book (EX: 4.3) or can I just normally draw a straight line as the bond?

We won’t be asked to draw the VSEPR models, but to know their names and bond angles. In all of our homework, we weren’t asked to draw VSEPR models, but instead, a Lewis structure.

Drawing black triangles and dashed triangles is helpful to fully grasp the shape of the structure. I don't believe we have to draw VSEPR models though. ^

No we do not need to draw the VSEPR models, they are just used to visualize the 3D structure.

I believe you can just draw the lines, and that the triangles and dashes were just used to help us fully understand the structure.
