Hydrogen bonding is maximum in a) Ethanol b) Diethyl ether c) Ethyl chloride d) Triethylamine

Oxygen atom is more electronegative than nitrogen atom so, it will strongly attract the positively charged hydrogen atom more towards itself. Whereas nitrogen is less electronegative than oxygen. So, positively charged hydrogen atom will not be strongly attracted by the nitrogen atom. Therefore, ethanol will have maximum hydrogen bonding from the given options.
