Default  Page 285, Question 3

The answer explanation for question 3 should say “In order to explain an increase in boiling point, the answer has to explain how intermolecular bonds would strengthen. The intermolecular bonds in noble gases are entirely London dispersion forces. If the atoms are more polarizable, dipole interactions would increase in strength, making choice B incorrect. Larger atoms are more polarizable because the electrons can get farther from the nucleus, eliminating choices C and D.”
