Shape and Lewis Structure

When the question asks for the Lewis Structure, would I be penalized if I draw out the shape instead (as the shape is just a more “advanced” version of Lewis Structure?

If the question specifically asks for Lewis structure, I think it would be best to draw it out. However, it is usually helpful to draw or name the shape as well, as doing so helps you determine the polarity of the molecule.
