Which of the following is the strongest type of force that is present in an ionic bonding?

A London forces
B Covalent forces
C Electrostatic forces
D Hydrogen bonding forces

Ans. C In order to answer this question we have to think in terms of ionic bonding. What enables the formation of an ionic bond in the first place? The electronegativity differences between the bonded atoms make ionic bonds possible. It is in fact the electrostatic forces that hold the atoms involved in an ionic bond.
