Hi, was doing some past papers today and don't understand what it means when it says 'penalise sticks'.
Could someone please explain this
Drawing organic molecules, query on mark scheme (AQA)

It is an interesting turn of phrase. I believe they are referring to skeletal notation. When it is asking for the displayed formula, you have to show ALL bonds including the O-H (my students always miss this one!)
The only other explanation is for those people who occasionally draw the bond but don't add the hydrogen atom on.
I hope that helps
