Answer: $C-H \lt C-Fe \lt C-O \lt C-F$
In the above given bonds, one element (Carbon) is the same.
We need to look at the electronegativity of other elements, which we see increases in the order $ H \lt Fe \lt O \lt F$
$\Rightarrow$ polar character of the bond increases in the order $C-H \lt C-Fe \lt C-O \lt C-F$
