Can someone pls explain how to draw the Lewis structure for KOH and how to determine if its a bronsted acid or a base? Thanks!

You would draw the lewis structure in terms of ionic compounds as it is not covalent, so thus you would draw K with a plus charge next to OH with a negative charge while showing the paired shared and lone electrons on and between the O and H. KOH is considered a strong lewis base and is usually not described by bronsted terminology.
