  • Hello! So I doubt you still need the answer to this question, but for anyone who does...

    The more electronegative atom will carry a partial negative charge while the less electronegative atom will carry a partial positive charge.

    Electronegative Values:

    F = 3.98

    O = 3.44

    Cl = 3.16

    N = 3.04

    C = 2.55

    S = 2.58

    H = 2.2

    So the answer to your question is:

    • C-O -

    • O-CL +

    • O-F -

    • C-N -

    • CL-C +

    • S-H +

    + S-CL -
