Answer:

Nonpolar covalent or slightly polar covalent.

Explanation:

The type of bond and amount of ionic character depends on the difference of electronegativity (#DeltaEN#) between the two atoms.

If #0<=DeltaEN<=0.4#, the bond is nonpolar covalent.
If #0.4< DeltaEN<=1.8#, the bond is polar covalent.
If #1.8< DeltaEN#, the bond is ionic.
