I would first calculate the weakest bond energy and then by using E=hv find the frequency. Then you can find wavelength with c=wavelengthxfrequency

They are all covalent bonds, so You must calculate the energy bond,then choose the weakest.

Well.....why don't you find all the energies and then deside wich bond is the weakest!

you can find it for each of the bond . . and u will come to know that its IF bond
