Which of the following molecules are likely to form hydro- gen bonds: (a) PH3; (b) HBr; (c) C2H4; (d) HNO2?

Hydrogen bonds form when hydrogen interacts with nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine. In this problem, only d can create hydrogen bonds because it has nitrogen and oxygen.

Hydrogen bonds form when there is a lone pair on the N, O, and F atom. This can be seen in HNO2 too and makes the intermolecular forces between the molecules strong.

I agree with this. hydrogen bonds form only when hydrogen bonds with nitrogen oxygen or florine so D would be the only one that forms a hydrogen bond.
