I believe it is Carbon bonded to the other carbon because out of all those atoms, carbon is the smallest. Since its the smallest, the atoms will be closer together when bonded bc their bonds are slightly shorter.

the answer key says c-o, but the explanation doesn't sound right. It says that since o is the smallest, but both n and c are smaller, so I really don't know.
