Do we need to memorize which bonds correspond to which differences in electronegativity?

No, I believe if we need to determine the differences in electronegativities, a periodic table with electronegativities will be provided.

We probably need to the know the general trend of electronegativity, which is proportional to ionization energy

You can use the general trends in increasing and decreasing electronegative for the periodic table can help identify the general differences in electronegativity between 2 elements without needing to know the exact values.

The trend in the periodic table should be good enough as usually, the difference is pretty apparent and doesn't require actually knowing the values.

I suppose we should remember the electronegativity trends but probably not bonds specifically.
