Why is (b) CBr4 classified as only having london forces?

I think it's because the Br atoms are all bonded in an equal manner to the C in the center, and so there isn't really temporary dipole moments.

All of the electrons are being shared equally so there is no polarity

Since the dipole moments all cancel out the molecule is non-polar. I initially thought it could be dipole induced dipole but a UA said that we would need to know the other molecule to say that it was dipole induced dipole. So, in this case, it would only be London forces Hope that helps
