When being asked for the formula for oxalate, when can we write "ox" and when can we write "C2O4"?

Not quite sure specifically what Lavelle would want, but to be safe I'd go with the two notations in the book- C2O4 or O2CCO2. If you're talking about naming with the full versus abbreviated name, it looks to be interchangeable in the same way that EN is with ethylenediamine.
