I don't think we'll be given a chart. However, based on periodic trends, you should be able to figure out the relative electronegativity difference. Just remember that electronegativity increases as you go up and right on the periodic table.
Another way to remember it is that electronegativity follows the general increasing trend of ionization energy on the periodic table. That is except for the part in ionization energy where O is less than N. This dip in Ionization Energy is not present in Electronegativity.
Electronegativity is actually one of the more consistent periodic trends and generally increases across a period and decreases down a group. While a similar trend characterizes the ionization energies, do note (as mentioned above) that there is no decrease in electronegativity from N to O and from Be to B as there are for the IE's.
