Uhhh what? That question is worded very strangely, but hydrogen would most likely bond with F given it would have the largest difference in EN.

I edited the question I accidently put hydrogen twice

is the answer based on the elements of the periodic table?

Yes. As you can see F has a lot of protons, it has a larger atomic number (it is more right to the periodic table). That means it has a high propensity to draw electrons from hydrogen, thus easily forming a covalent bond. Another thing is it is higher up the periodic table, meaning it less electrons, thus less electron shells, which mean less shielding of positive charge in the nucleus (where protons are). So this is another way it can attract electrons to bong with hydrogen.
