Is the bond strength affected when the overall charge of the molecule is negative?

(Is this is about that one question in test 3 ?)

I went to a UA and asked and he basically said the slight negative charge of the
Two molecules made the nucleus of the atom slightly more positive which would have more of an attractive force pulling in other atoms
So maybe this makes the double bond shorter
I am not really sure

Yes but I don't know exactly to what extent.

The shorter the bond, the stronger it is. Triple bonds are the shortest and single bonds are the longest.

For the length of bond the order is: triple < double < single.

Two bonds are stronger than one because the molecules are doubly bound to each other by sharing more than one electron.
