# Using MO theory predict which of the following species has the shortest bond length

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)O_2^{2+}\\(b)O_2^+\\(c)O_2^-\\(d)O_2^{2-}\end{array}$

$O_2^{2+}$ has highest bond order 3 compare to other molecules, hence it has the shortest bond length.
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
