Work Step by Step

For intermolecular hydrogen bonding to occur, we know that Hydrogen must be bonded to Nitrogen, Oxygen, or Fluorine. Since there is a bond between hydrogen and oxygen, this will have a higher boiling point than b) or c). Thus, it will have the second highest boiling point. Note, Hydrogen bonding does not occur within molecules but between different molecules in which a Hydrogen is bonded to Nitrogen, Oxygen, or Fluorine.
