This sounds like Chemistry, which I have taken but do not recall this. Upon some research: https://sciencing.com/factors-affect-melting-point-8690403.html Does any of this ring a bell? Until we get a chem expert in here, lol

I have to go though, so hopefully @Bearclaws72 can assist you. This section seems promising though: "https://sciencing.com/factors-affect-melting-point-8690403.html" @ThisGirlPretty @Pixel @dude

Well I know that stronger intermolecular forces affect melting points, i think higher intermolecular forces means higher melting point

So first off, we can eliminate B

Do you know what Van der Waals and London dispersion forces are?

nuclearbxmb:

No, I don't to be honest but I took a chance just choose A. Higher intermolecular forces , it turned out the be correct answer.

Yeah, well for reference "London dispersion force is the weakest intermolecular force" Van der Waals - "weak, short-range electrostatic attractive forces between uncharged molecules, arising from the interaction of permanent or transient electric dipole moments."

dude:

They both were related to low intermolecular forces, which makes A the best answer
