Answer:

The best examples to cite would be ammonia, and hydrogen fluoride.

Explanation:

Both #NH_3# and #HF# feature the hydrogen atom bound to a highly electronegative element. The resultant bond polarity gives rise to hydrogen bonding as a potent intermolecular force. You should check the boiling points of both these materials, and compare them to their Group homologues, #PH_3# and #HX#.
