Solution

The correct options are
A

Both molecules have fractional bond order.


C

Both have odd electron bond in their structures.


D

Both are paramagnetic in nature.


Clearly, both have fractional bond order since each compound has an odd-electron bond in its structure. This also makes them both paramagnetic (odd unpaired electron).

Nitric oxide NO is clearly neutral. The aqueous solution of the gas ClO2 is neutral and is a strong oxidizing agent.
