Hydrogen bond may be formed between

Two hydrogen atoms
Hydrogen atom and electropositive atom
H-atom and electronegative atom with small size
H-atom and electronegative atom with larger size

detailed solution

Correct option is C

Hydrogen bonding occurs when H atom is linked to an electronegative atom like F, O or N. It is the force of attraction between small positive charge developed on H atom and small negative charge developed on electronegative atom due to displacement of electrons towards more electronegative atom.
