Use the drawing of a molecular orbital energy diagram for ClF to predict the bond order?
Not sure if a molecular orbital energy diagram is available for diatomic molecules involving third row elements like Cl. Based on more elementary bonding theory, we could assume a bonding order of 1 since ClF obeys the Octet Rule and we can assume SP3 hybrid orbitals for both, Cl and F. This does not answer your question as it is asked. I hope it helps a little.
