Could you help us how to know what plane I draw a sketch on it? Maybe it shows instruction like this?
In 2016 you can see the arrows indicating parent and child.
Hey Phuc... Yes, those dynamic reference arrows (going up) are showing the parents of the sketch. In this case the sketch is using the right plane for something. Somehow it is related to it. Does not necessarily mean it was sketched on it. You can also right click on the sketch and do a "parent child", or an edit sketch plane. If you do an edit sketch plane it will tell you what plane, surface, whatever, it is drawn on.
Here is an example of an edit sketch plane.
Thanks for your sharing, Dennis!
I've used SW2016 and I want to see arrows like this. Can I see those arrows on SW2016?
Yes....Right mouse button on the top of your tree and select:
2015 SOLIDWORKS Help - Viewing Feature Relationships
It is good to have latest version. I have seen 2014 YouTube videos which uses many jugglery to add a feature in a model, whereas with SWX 2017 I have added such feature with couple of mouse clicks. It is making life easy.

It's also possible that the person making that video didn't know a more efficient method than using "jugglery". As far as I know anyone can post a video on YouTube, even if they don't really know what they're doing and shouldn't be teaching.
More the command on the subject better the efficient method will be. How long one will need to get a command? It is different person to person because parents never produce photocopies.
Thanks Dan for your support!
The other option is to right click on the sketch > edit sketch plane. This will highlight it for you (and let you change it).
