Hi I was wondering if this would be considered hydrogen bonding.

CH4 and H-O-H

It's not right? Because in this case, the oxygen atom is between two Hs and it's supposed to be the hydrogen atom to be in between two electronegative atoms.

Is this correct?
Thanks!

No. Alkanes do not hydrogen bond. For the MCAT, just know the H-Bonding Rule: Hydrogen must be bonded to O, N, F in order to participate in hydrogen bonding.
