Solution

The correct option is A True
Order of strength of overlapping: $$\mathrm{s-s >s-p>p-p}$$

Overlapping in case of $$\mathrm{C-H}$$ bond is $$\mathrm{s-p}$$ whereas in case of $$\mathrm{C-C}$$ bond is $$\mathrm{p-p}$$. So, $$\mathrm{C-H}$$ bond is stronger than $$\mathrm{C-C}$$ bond.

Hence, the given statement is True.
