Solution

The correct option is B none of the above
All the four compounds are polar and have net dipole moment. They all contain polar bonds. However NO2 in solid state undergoes dimerization to form N2O4. Its planar configuration is more stable than twisted configuration. In the planar configuration, the individual bond dipoles cancel each other and the configuration becomes non polar.
