# Which of the following is the correct for the strength of bonds by s-s,p-p,s-p overlap

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;s-s < p-p < s-p\\(b)\; s-s < s-p < p-p\\(c)\;p-p < s-p < s-s\\(d)\;p-p < s-s < s-p\end{array}$

The strength of bonds by s-s,p-p and s-p overlap is in the order of p-p < s-p < s-s
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
