Identify the arrangement (I, II, or III; all molecules are CH2Cl2) that should possess the strongest intermolecular attractions, and justify your selection.
(there's an image in the textbook).

How are we supposed to be able to tell the difference in the arrangements of these molecules? I cannot see whats different about them.

II has the negatively charged CL atoms and the positively charged H atoms closest to each other, so the forces are strongest.

How can you determine what I, II, and III are from the compound and tell the charges from each?
