(d) hydrogen bonds

Work Step by Step

The water-water bonds are not actually bonds; Rather, they are intermolecular forces. The water molecules are held together by an attraction between the slightly negative oxygen of one water molecule and the slightly positive hydrogen of another water molecule. This intermolecular force is called a hydrogen bond. A hydrogen bond is an attraction between a Hydrogen atom and either a Fluorine, Oxygen, or Nitrogen atom. The other answer choices are not intermolecular forces, rather types of bonds, or intramolecular forces.
