We are being asked to list the given compounds in order from lowest to highest C-C bond strength.


The bond energy determines the strength of the bond in a compound.

▪ the higher the bond energy, the higher is the energy required to break up the molecule/compound into its individual atoms
higher bond energy higher bond strength


The bond strength also determines the distance between the atoms
