a
Greater is the nuclear charge , greater is the negative electron gain enthalpy.
b
Nitrogen has almost zero electron gain enthalpy.
c
Negative electron gain enthalpy decreases from fluorine to iodine in the group.
d
Chlorine has highest negative electron gain enthalpy.

detailed solution

Correct option is C

The electron gain enthalpy typically falls as one moves down the group as a result of an increase in atomic size, however travelling from F to Cl results in an increase in electron gain enthalpy.
