When given molecules, how do I tell which ones only exhibit London Forces?

The molecules that only exhibit London dispersion forces will not have any strong polar bonds in the molecule, so the molecule will not have strong dipole moments. For example, Cl2 will only have London dispersion forces.

Molecules that are non-polar only experiences London Dispersion Forces. For example, hydrogen gas H2 and methane CH4.
