Essentially, the question is asking the following: Of CF4, CCl4, and CBr4, which is the strongest bond? The strongest bond would be the shortest bond; the pull between the two atoms is the strongest. Therefore, the strongest C-X bond would be predicted to be CF4.

In addition, the CF4 bond is the shortest because the size of an F is the smallest compared to Cl and Br. The smaller the size of the atoms, the shorter the bonds.
