Solution

The correct option is C O
Electronegativity is a measure of an atom's ability to attract shared electrons to itself. In the periodic table, electronegativity generally increases as you move from left to right across a period and decreases as you move down a group.
According to Pauling’s electronegativity scale, oxygen (O) has an electronegativity value of approximately 3.5, which is next to fluorine (F) with electronegativity value of approximately 4.
