    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)
