You have to compare the electromagnetivity between the two atoms. The difference tells you what kind of bond it is, and a higher difference means a stronger bond. Ionic bonds would have the strongest bonds, and hydrogen bonds would be the weakest.
You may also need to know the distinction between covalent and ionic bonds with regard to their electronegativity difference (difference>2 is ionic, difference<1.5 is covalent, the area in between can go either way depending on which type of character is displayed more).
