How do I know what bonds are broken and created?

In my opinion, it is best to draw out lewis structures for the reaction to see exactly which bonds were broken and created.

Drawing out the correct Lewis structures will help you visually see what bonds are broken and/or formed. You compare and contrast which bonds you see on the reactants side, and which bonds you see on the products side.
