    Silicon-Phosphorus, Na-O, and and Ca-Br are ionic, @Sheng

    C and N has to be polar covalent. Both atoms are strongly electronegative, but N is only slightly more so, resulting in a slight negative charge towards N.

    Is silicon not a metal? I thought metal-nonmetal bonds are all ionic...

    polar is anything that has an electronegativity difference

    doesnt matter if it's metal or non-metal, that's only generally speaking
