I do not believe so! As number of bonds increases, bond length decreases due to a stronger attraction.

As far as the content we have covered goes, I don't believe so. Just know that multiple bonds are stronger and shorter than single bonds, increasing in strength but decreasing in length from single, to double, to triple bonds. Also recall that lone pairs on neighboring atoms will repel one another and therefore weaken the bond because of that electron-electron repulsion.

Nope! Shorter bond length= stronger attractions, longer bond length=weaker attraction.
