2E.21 hw prob

for a. does it matter if, for the lewis structure, the hydrogens are drawn vertically above and below the carbon atoms instead of diagonally like how it is in the book?

For Lewis Dot structures, both would be technically correct. So not it doesn't matter. However, the structure with the hydrogen atoms drawn diagonally helps show the molecular geometry of the molecule.
