  1. All of these look ok except 3. C is not right for 3. Look up the electronegativity of each element and subtract to find the relative polarity of each compound.

  3. Yes, but you show know this is correct from
    F-F = 4.0-4.0 = 0
    O-F = 4.0-3.5 = 0.5
    H-F = 4.0-2.1 = 1.9

    F-F is least polar
    H-F is most polar.
