I thought it would be A seeing how NaCl form an ionic bond...
Wait the choices run a,c,b,d. Which one is b?
N and Cl. Sorry, the answer choices are messed up.

Other answers:

Na + Cl is going to be VERY polar since the electron will become essentially part of the C. S + Cl will share the electrons slightly unevenly as Cl "wants" the electron more than S. Since N + Cl have different numbers of electrons to acquire, the electrons will gravitate more towards Cl since it is more massive in size comparison and needs only one electron (thus the Z effect or effect of the nucleus will become stronger and pull the electrons closer to Cl).
Does this have to do with the different charges?
deferance in electronegativity more likely
Okay. Thanks.
