Are they single, double or triple bonds? We haven't done it in class but we've been set it for hw and google isn't helping much.

Can you draw dot and cross diagrams for these molecules?

Single bonds. Ammonia and water also have H-bonding
Just giving answers to questions like this rarely helps the asker. It is much better to help people come to their own understanding, so that they can work out answers to similar questions in the future.

Thanks for answering though, I moved on questions and drew dot and cross diagrams for later ones, which were obviously double bonds. I just wasn't sure if multiple pairs meant it was a double or not but I understand now.

I assume your reference to "later ones" refers to other questions in your list of questions.

When you say "multiple pairs" which molecules are you talking about?
