Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A water molecule can participate in 4 hydrogen bonds.

This is because the 2 hydrogen atoms will form 2 H-bonds and the O atom will also form 2 H-bonds due its 2 lone-pair of atoms.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
