Answer:

#"A covalent bond..........."#

Explanation:

For a homonuclear covalent bond, that the individual atoms have high electronegativity is irrelevant. Why? Because the participating atoms have EQUAL electronegativity. And thus for atoms of high electronegativity, we would expect to find #X_2#. And for #F_2#, #O_2#, #N_2# do we not COMMONLY FIND, covalent, binuclear molecules?
