Since we know that Fluorine has weaker forces than Iodine The answer must be A. For B, E to work Iodine would have to have weaker forces than Fluorine and for C, D to work they would have to have the same dispersion forces  **The stronger the dispersion forces, the harder it is to break apart the molecule. Higher the Boiling Point and Melting Point**
