  • Inter- molecular bonding means secondary bonding (hydrogen bond, dipole-dipole interaction and London dispersion forces)....due to the presence of the hydroxyl group ( the OH group), the inter-molecular forces between ethanol molecules are hydrogen bonds.
Intermolecular hydrogen bonds will be formed in alcohols.
Hence (b) is the correct answer
