Can someone help me with a chemistry question?
Which of the following molecules can form a hydrogen bond with a water molecule??

To form a hydrogen bond there should be one of these N,O,F molecules bind with
H atom. Then there will be a dipole between those two atoms.
therefore we can ignore
N2- it doesn't have H atom
CH4- because it doesn't contain non of these molecules(N,O,F)
O2- it also doesn't have H atom in order to form a Hydrogen bond. There should be H atom bonded with one of these molecules.
N O or F
The answer is NH3.(its N atom bonded with 3 H atoms)
