Solution

The correct option is A

True


Electronegativity is the ability of an atom to attract the shared pair of electrons in a molecule.

When atoms of elements with different electronegativities form a molecule, the atom with higher electronegativity attracts the shared pair of electrons towards itself as a result developing partial charges. These bonds are called polar covalent bond.

The combining elements of hydrogen molecules are identical, i.e. they have no difference in their electronegativity.
Therefore, the bond formed is non-polar covalent bond.
