    \(\sf \color{red}{Cohesion}\) is the property of like molecules (of the same substance) to stick to each other due to mutual attraction \(\sf \color{blue}{Adhesion}\) is a property of different molecules or surfaces to cling to each other \(\sf \color{orange}{London ~dispersion}\) is a temporary attractive force that results when the electrons in two adjacent atoms occupy positions that make the atoms form temporary dipoles

    So adhesion?

    One example, solids: they have high cohesive properties so they do not stick to the surfaces they come in contact. On the other hand, gases have weak cohesion. Water has both cohesive and adhesive properties. Water molecules stick to each other to form a sphere. This is the result of cohesive forces. When contained in a tube, the water molecules touching the surface of the container are at a higher level. This is due to the adhesive force between the water molecules and the molecules of the container.

    |dw:1439406538610:dw| Hydrogen bonding that occurs between two ammonia molecules. one between the lone pair of electrons on the nitrogen and one of the hydrogens on an adjacent ammonia molecule.

    Both of the molecules are the same, and yeah go by what @abb0t said.

    They've already stated what hydrogen bonding is, but they're asking what it is, @Photon336
