Do not draw carbons in the structure, instead join the lines. Show chlorine because it is a halogen. The following is the line-angle structure for the compound:

Work Step by Step

In a line-angle structure, carbons and hydrogens attached to the carbons are not drawn. So instead of drawing carbons the lines in the lewis structure should be connected to form a line-angle structure. However, halogens have to be shown in the structure. In this case the halogen is Cl so it drawn in the structure.
