The extremely high melting point of diamond (carbon) may be explained by the (1) Network covalent bond (2) Ionic bond (3) Hydrogen bond (4) Van der waal's forces

Answer: (1)

Diamonds are the homogeneous, naturally-occurring, solid, and generally inorganic substance with definable chemical composition and an orderly internal arrangement of atoms. In diamond, each carbon atom is bonded to four other carbon atoms by covalent bonds. This makes it super strong and so it has a high melting and boiling point. With no electrons to spare, diamond can’t conduct electricity.
