# Which of the following orders of melting point of hydrides of halogens is correct?

$\begin{array}{1 1}HF > HCl > HBr\\HF < HCl < HBr\\HF > HCl < HBr\\HF < HCl > HBr\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

Answer : HF > HCl < HBr
Because of hydrogen bonding,HF has higher melting point than HCl,which,in turn,has smaller melting point than HBr
