    HCl does not form hydrogen bonds because chlorine is not electronegative enough, and it has larger size, so hydrogen bonds are not formed.  They are generally formed with fluorine, oxygen, and nitrogen. Thus, phenol, liq ammonia and water forms hydrogen bonds. Therefore, the correct option is B Carbon–hydrogen bonds have a bond length of about 1.09 Å (1.09 × 10−10 m) and a bond energy of about 413 kJ/mol (see table below). Using Pauling's scale—C (2.55) and H (2.2)—the electronegativity difference between these two atoms is 0.35. Because of this small difference in electronegativities, the C−H bond is generally regarded as being non-polar.  Electronegativity is very less.but it is it is almost considered to be non polar.


    but priya ji CH3 also cannot form hydrogen bond because carbon is not electronegative enough plz explain this mam


    the C-H bond is non polar so hydrogen bond will not be formed... thus option A can be correct na mam
